Have you had difficulty swallowing foods or liquids? Do you cough or clear your throat after meals?
These are common complaints heard by an ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) physician. Swallowing difficulty is common in all ages and is caused by many different factors. In children, this is often the result of enlarged tonsils. In adults, it can be from acid reflux, tumors in the throat, or degenerative changes.
