Adam's apple reduction

Hello,

It appears as if the right lamina of your thyroid cartilage or "Adam's Apple" is hypertrophied or enlarged. It is fairly common for one side of the cartilage to be larger than the other. However, this could be a mass caused by something else as well, so an in-person consult to evaluate it is most appropriate. You may want to start with your family doctor so that he/she can refer you to the appropriate person. 

All the best,

Deformity

Unfortunately, you will need to see a doctor to diagnose this and make treatment recommendations. You might look into a teaching clinic at a hospital with training programs.
