I am sorry to hear you are worried about this lump in Bo's neck. It is probably not the bone in her esophagus. If she had a bone there she would not be able to swallow, eat or drink. She would probably be drooling a lot, because she would not be able to swallow her own saliva.

If she is eating and drinking and swallowing normally, this lump is not in her esophagus. It may be her larynx, a prominent lump of bones that supports the opening to her windpipe, or it could be an enlarged lymph nodes.

Please let me know what other questions I can answer, and if this is helpful.
