I have a whitish lump at the back of my throat located on the posterior wall. I suffer badly from post nasal drip but not sure if this is related, doctors seem unsure and I am worried sick. Any input as to what this could be? Suffer from GERD, post nasal drip, have had blood at the back of throat over the area of concern previously (when the lump was not visible).

Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern, it is most likely submucosal lymphadenitis of the posterior pharyngeal wall. This may develop secondary to chronic infection of the nose, paranasal sinuses, and throat. To confirm the diagnosis, you may go for MRI neck and FNAC from the lump. Most of the time it is reported as non-specific reactive hyperplasia which is not a problem and maybe leave as such but if anything special comes in FNAC then that may be plan for treatment accordingly.
