Has anyone had this?

I had a microscope down my throat and the doctor discovered a cyst just to the left of my vocal cords (not on).

Could it be related to reflux?

Possible i think. Imagine the acid keep getting washed up your throat.

Since the inside of our throat has a lot of lymphoid tissue (like tonsil and more), it is the commonest origin for cyst formation. Wondering what your Dr. thinks caused your throat cyst ?
 
I hope all works out ok for you.

Does not know.

It does make me feel comfortable that it is the most common place for a cyst.

I wonder if a lot of people have them and don't even know because they don't have any reason for a throat examination.

I am wondering if it goes away on its own.

Has anyone had one or know someone that had one?
