My throat has felt tight for the past two days

Patient: My throat has felt tight for the past two days and is not painfully but annoying. I feel a need to swallow repeatiently every so often. Drinking water can satifsfy it for a short time. It is very uncomfortable and I am not on any medications. What do you think it might be and what might I do to relive the syntoms, and is there a possiblitiy that this could be dangerous?

 

 

Symptoms: Swollen throat, uncomfortable, small lump near Addams apple, dry, feel like swallowing often
