I have been getting a pain/tightening on the right side of my neck/throat area. It may happen twice in one week then not again for 2 months. When it happens I can't swallow, due to the pain. I feel as though I need to not breath until it subsides. Should I be concerned?

Hi, Pain or tightening feeling on one side of the neck or throat with no history of thyroid problem could occur due to any tonsil enlargement which may become symptomatic at times of some throat infection. Other rarer but possible causes could be internal thyroid enlargement pressurizing throat, throat cancer etc which needs throat examination by ENT surgeon. Hope this helps.
