Lump under chin by throat tender

Patient : Lump under chin by throat tender
Doctor :   Hi, Welcome to Ask the Doctor. Thanks for your query. > You have provided us with as little information that It is highly difficult for us to guess what help you actually want from us. > However according to your history you have lump under chin by throat tender. It is very difficult for us to comment on the lump as we have not seen it. > That lump can be either a Lipoma, fibroma or cyst. Any swelling in the body requires a thorough physical examination to know what actually it is. > I sincerely request you to visit a Surgeon near you and get the swelling examined, and hence further management can be planned accordingly. > And also you said that you have a tender throat, this can be either due to the lump or may be due to the throat inflammation. > If it is due to throat inflammation, then try to do warm water gargle with some salt added in it, 2-3 times daily and try to drink warm fluids as well. This shall help you. > If this does not help then you will have to get your throat examined by a ENT Doctor. Hope I have answered your question in detail. Wish you good health. Take care.
