The feel of a larynx

I'm really not sure how to Google this. I'm writing a scene in which there's a mention of one character attempting to choke another. The line went something like, "He could feel the larynx beneath his thumbs, spongy and yielding" until I realized I have no idea if pushing really hard on a person's larynx with your thumbs feels like that at all. Can anyone tell me what sort of sensation it might be?


ETA: Thanks, all, for the help. I'm changing "spongy and yielding" to "hard and lumpy." :-)
