Hard Bump/Knot in Front Of Throat???

So I took my baby Comanche over to the trainer today and we were checking over him and the trainer noticed a knot or bump in front of his neck . I felt it myself and honestly had never noticed it before. It's not protruding out but it's there . The only way I know to describe it would be like an adams apple on a man. Do horses have adams apples or something like it ? We felt his other horses neck and he didn't have one so I am unsure on what it could be ?

Horses do not have adams apples. Can you take a picture? I just took my filly to the vet yesterday to get a lump checked out on her throat.

A picture wouldn't help because you have to push down on his neck to feel it . If you are just looking at his neck you cannot see it . That is why is has me confused. He eats and drinks fine and I have never noticed anything in his neck bothering him. I know he likes to hang his head over the fence and what not .

Hmmm. All I can say right now is keep watching it. Mine ended up being a hemotoma that we didn't have to lance. He may have been leaning a little to hard on the fence, or who knows. Is he pastured with other horses. My filly's was a larger lump because the vet determined she was probably kicked by my mare.

Ya , there are two other horses and a donkey. Comanche is the alpha of them all and the only one that bothers him really is the donkey, but that is because they play together all the time haha !

All I can say is he may have possibly been kicked by the donkey during play, more so if swelling occurs.

Where exactly is the lump? Can you find a picture or sketch to draw on and point it out?

Here is the best I could do for right now . When I go out and see him I will try and mark it and take a picture with his head raised

It MIGHT be an enlarged thyroid. I would call the vet and ask, maybe get a thyroid function test.
