HI...sounds like u might have post nasal drip that may have developed into reflux....please see ur PCP for a complete check up as this condition left untreated can cause more issues.

The other thing the lump may be is a goiter....have ur thyroid checked as well....but I really think u may have a reflux issue.

Good luck and please post an update

Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
It could be that you have a lump actually. In which case it could be an abscess or a swollen lymph node. Otherwise it could be an area of inflammation caused by gastric reflux or by a post nasal drip. Please consult an ENT and get this investigated.
It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.  Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
