Why do I always/constantly feel the need to clear my throat?

I've had this problem for a couple of years, but have grown to overlook it. Doctors have commonly mistaken it for allergies or have prescribed me expectorant, but allergy medication doesn't work and phlegm never comes up. The last time I went to the doctor (a couple months ago), he couldn't find anything wrong with me, and asked me if I'd been around any chemicals. He prescribed me expectorant which toned down the problem slightly, but no phlegm came up from the medication. Sometimes I force myself to cough to get whatever it is up, and constantly clear my throat, but it doesn't help. Now, I noticed I have a small white bump to the left of that dangling thing in my throat. What's going on?

Answer:
allergies.
it may be cancer :( uh oh.....
I have the same problem.
Post Nasal Drip cause by allergies.
Mucus drips down the back of your throat cuasing you to cough it out.
YOUR PHALLUS MIGHT BE TOO LONG ..I KNOW A GUY HAD TO HAVE HIS CUT SMALLER
ALSO COULD BE A NERVOUS COUGH .. BUT SEE A ENT DOCTOR ( EARS , NOSE AND THROAT) .YOU MAY HAVE POST-NASAL DRIP TOO
My room mate in college had really bad allergies (as she claimed) and used to do it constantly. To the point where I thought she has an Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Consult an Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist. U might be having post nasal discharge because of some chronic infection in back of internal nose (Nasopharynx) which tickles down on ur throat and constantly irritating it.
