Has anyone ever experienced persistent pain in the right area of the throat?
It is constantly throbbing pain when I swallow, to the touch, and just hurts a lot in this one area of my throat. My doctor said it is a swollen lymph gland, which I hope is all that it is. It does look swollen a little from the outside. I notice that I experience throat pain in this one particular area first before any other area of my throat and the pain sometimes never goes away. A friend of mine developed a very swollen gland in this area of her throat to the point of it being as large as a grapefruit and she had to get the gland surgically removed. I hope this doesn't happen to me.
