I have a bony protrusion which I can feel at back of my tongue. I can follow it to my Cervical Spine. I have a very sore throat. This protrusion feels like it is stuck in my jaw. Will this show up on MRI ?
How are you? Do you still experience the bony protrusion? How long have you been experiencing this? Imaging studies including MRI may be very helpful in identifying the anatomy such as the bony protrusion. Direct clinical evaluation by an ENT or specialist may also help. Take care and do keep us posted.
Thank you for your reponse. Yes I still feel it all the time on the left side at back of my tongue. Much worse after eating or if I have to carry on long conversation..I can trace it and feels like it is coming from C 2.. I know this is rare but it is becoming much worse. My throat bothered me for couple years. Have you heard of this before?
