Question: should I seek MD?

A few days ago I was using my tounge to get food from my teeth when something felt like it snapped. Shortly thereafter a lump swelled on the side of my throat that only lasted about an hour. Two days later (yesterday) the lump came back out of nowhere and has not gone away. When I talk or try to eat my thoat feels like it wants to shut. It is painful, and I have been forced to intake only liquids since yesterday. Will this go away or should I see a doctor? Any remedies to suggest? Thank you#Sinphara

I think that somebody has to take a look at your throat.
