HI Doctor, I'm getting increasingly worried and out my throat

Patient : HI Doctor, I'm getting increasingly worried and out my throat... I have a very red throat that isn't sore, nor am I eperiencing any pain, however I am having a niggling sensation of a lump in my throat and I am constantly having to clear my throat, I'm 110kg in weight, approx 17 stone, and I'm 5'10" tall so I wouldn't say I'm morbidly obese, I do carry a little weight around my neck area (like a double chin) but it's not overly fat... I'm very active and I don't smoke, I have very little alcohol consumption and I don't eat a great deal of rubbish, so I'm quite healthy I would say otherwise... Other than that nothing, no horseness, no real cough (I guess only to clear my throat) I'm not coughing up blood, I'm not feeling sick/unwell I'm just extremely anxious. Please help me put my mind at easy... Many thank yous Gareth
