I have had a lump on my right side of my neck and it does bother me and at times I feel like I have something in the back of my throat like you do when you have a lot of mucas when you have a cold should I be concerned? At times I do feel dizzy and get headaches as well.. But I am 31 and my wisdom teeth are coming in as well so I've put it all off to that
Your symptoms appear to be due to common cold related viral infection induced sore throat. They do not appear to be due to cancers.
Usually once a infection subsides the residual inflammation of the airway causes persistent soreness of the throat, which lasts until the healing is completed. This complete healing may take as long as 4-6 weeks in some cases.
Instead of worrying about it, you can relax and relieve your stress. The more you are stressed, the more your symptoms will increase. Supportive therapy with NSAIDs (Advil), steam inhalation, cough lozenges, and adequate rest and good fluid intake will also be helpful in quicker recovery.
