senior man with throat or neck irritation

Difficulty in swallowing is common among all age groups, especially the elderly, and can be caused by a variety of factors. Symptoms of swallowing disorders can include drooling, discomfort, a feeling that food or liquid is sticking, or a foreign body sensation or “lump” in the throat, weight loss, and inadequate nutrition due to prolonged or severe problems with swallowing, coughing or choking, and voice change. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please schedule an appointment with our ear, nose, and throat specialist.
