Kindly mention the diagnosis .
Information provided by you is insufficient to comment on it...
It could be Zenker's diverticulum.
Zenker diverticula require intervention only if they produce symptoms. In general, small (ie, < 2 cm) lesions found incidentally require no intervention. However, some surgeons contend that because these lesions are likely to become larger with time, intervention ought to be considered in younger, healthier, asymptomatic patients with Zenker diverticula.
