Lump in throat
I have recently found a lump in my throat. It is towards my left side and is becoming painful. I have already had measles, mumps and chickenpox. I have removed my tonsils as well. Should i be getting very concerned or is it temporary? My family has a history of cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart diseases.

Dear Candice
Let your doctor have a look - this may be a thyroid cyst or nodule.
