About a 2 months ago I was in the gym doing overhead weight exercises and I pulled my neck. The next day I noticed a lump just to one side of my throat about the size of an adams apple. Its hard and not painful. Someone at work said it could be swollen lymph?
Today I just incurred a sore throat and bad chest and cough. The lump doesnt seem to have gone down at all since I got it.
my father had a lump on his throat/neck and the doctors said it was a sist. I dont know if this is what you have or not because it did come up after lifting weights. But I know with my dad when he was younger he said he may have noticed a small lump but it would go away and whenever it came back it would be a little bigger. Maybe you have never noticed it and it just so happened to come up after you lifted weights. But anyways this may not be what you have but I hope it helps. Good luck.
