Lump near adam's apple

User Profile
I'm a 35 year old female and I found a lump on the left hand side of my throat near my adam's apple. My primary physician thought it was a lymph node but wasn't sure and put me on Keflex. It's been three days now and now two more spots feel swollen on either side of my throat under my jawline. I also have been experiencing heartburn which I've had recurrent bouts with over the past 8 years. I've had an endoscopy 6 yrs ago where they found some gastritis. I was diagnosed with celiac but my symptoms (heartburn, constipation and diarrhea) disappeared while I was pregnant. Now the heartburn is back and I have these lumps. I haven't been sick at all and the initial one near my adam's apple was painful to touch. I tested negative for strep and the doctor said my throat looked fine. I'm waiting blood test results. I have a family history of stomach cancer so I'm worried. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
