Hi degrassibabe02,
Sensation of lump in the throat is called ' Globus'.  It may be due to various reasons like  -
- GERD
- Muscle disorders
- Moods like grief and pride
- Esophageal webs
- Esophageal spasms
- Any real lump in the throat ( rare as you are just 16)

Meet a ENT specialist. He will visualize your throat to see if there is anything abnormal there.  He may refer you to an gastroenterologist/ endoscopist -if needed to rule out reflux and other problems of the
esophagus
