Question on nodules?????

I have a nodule on the right lobe that is the size of a quarter. My question is when I lay down I feel this oppresing feeling in my throat. Like I have food stuck in there and when I swallow I feel it. What could this be I have tried taking pills for heartburn but that dont help.

Solid nodule like this size can cause compressive symptoms. Some patients reporting that this is worse when they try to swallow with head tilted DOWN and eases up if they swallowing with head tilted up [especially if nodule is low on the neck]
