Avatar f tn I've smoked since I was about 19 years old and used all kinds of tobacco products except <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span> tobacco. I quit about a one and a half week ago. I seem to have more of the chronic bronchitor: #dae8f4'>is component rather than emphysema. I have a cough with a lot of mucous but only mild breathlessness upon exertion. My question or: #dae8f4'>is about hoarseness. My voice gets lower in pitch and kind of "croaky".
Avatar m tn It turned out to be just a bad sore <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. But still scared my so bad that everything that comes up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>from</span> my mouth to my stomach I instantly think its cancer related. So back to my physical, it goes good. Everything comes back normal, except for my cholesterol, which or: #dae8f4'>is high. So Doc puts me on omega 3 for: #dae8f4'>ish oil and says get more exercor: #dae8f4'>ise. Cool, feeling good. Day and half later I start to get a burning/pain in mid sternum area. It comes and goes, sometime its worse than others.
Avatar n tn YES WHO_or: #dae8f4'>is_THor: #dae8f4'>is or: #dae8f4'>is RIGHT! <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span> TOBACCA WILL DO THAT. I HAVE AN UNCLE THAT HAS cancer THANK TO chewing AND DIPPING. IT ALSO COULD BE A cancer SorE AND WITH YOU IRRITATING IT, YOU WILL ONLY MAKE IT WorSE. I KNOW, I DONT HAVE INSURANCE EITHER, SO I KNOW YOU DONT WANT TO HAVE TO PAY THAT EXPENSIVE BILL. BUT I RATHER BE SAFE THAN SorRY. DONT WAIT TO LATE, IF YOU GO GET IT TREATED NOW, IT COULD SAVE YOU mouth. I KNOW THor: #dae8f4'>is or: #dae8f4'>is NOT WHAT U WANTED TO HEAR, BUT IT or: #dae8f4'>is THE BEST THING.
1630273 tn?1302924569 I'm not a doctor or anything (yet lol) but I have read a little bit about oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> to scare my husband out of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span> tobacco.
Avatar m tn Anyways, quitting chewing was my second major goal and due to my constant fear of mouth and <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> I decided to blend the two together. I figured if I am going to be mor: #dae8f4'>iserable anyways from the hydro-methadone withdrawal I might as well come out of thor: #dae8f4'>is thing an ex-chewer as well. If I can just keep away from the opies and chew while exercor: #dae8f4'>ising 4-5 days a week, I think I might have a chance to make it into the diaper years!
Avatar m tn I am 23 years old and as I sit here doing the two things that cause me so much pain (drinking and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span> tobacco) I just can't seem to figure out how to let them go. I have been drinking everyday of my life for the past 8 years and I have been chewing tobacco everyday for the past 9 years. Now I have heard and know that the combo of the two raor: #dae8f4'>ise your ror: #dae8f4'>isk for cancer by alot. On average I drink around 5-7 cases of beer a week and I chew around 7 cans a week.
Avatar n tn I was a user of snuff <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chewing</span> tobacco <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>from</span> the time I was about 14 - 24 years of age, and then cigarettes for 10 years after that, I am now 34. I used to place the tobacco behind my lower lip. My question or: #dae8f4'>is thor: #dae8f4'>is, I notice for a long time after quitting chewing tobacco that the mucous membrane there never completely 'healed', but always remained somewhat inflamed, tender, and that there were many larger bumps all over my inner lower lip where I placed the tobacco.
Avatar n tn Regardless, these days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> in blamed on everything <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>from</span> alarm clocks to cell phones. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>from</span> what I read nic gum or: #dae8f4'>is still safer than cigerettes and other nic products. Oh ya, an a tip for you fellow nic gum addicts, I buy it buy the case from ebay , and find it from 5-15 dollars a box at the local flea markets and around 11-16 dollars a box on ebay. I rarely buy the 35-50 dollar boxes from the drug store or walmart. I love my gum and find it to keep my teeth clean from chewing reguarly.
Avatar n tn or: #dae8f4'>is that with respect to oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span>? Are you saying i have a less than 1 percent chance that i may get oral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> due to HPV <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>from</span> thor: #dae8f4'>is type of exposure. (assuming i don't perform oral sex agin on someone) Also, thor: #dae8f4'>is or: #dae8f4'>is assuming the worse; that she was in fact HPV-16 infected. Additionally, the lymph nodes in my neck on one side have been a little bigger, and also that side of the neck has been a little swollen.
Avatar m tn I have read on past threads that it or: #dae8f4'>is very uncommon for the virus to pass orally, but there must be some ror: #dae8f4'>isk factor if people with <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> have tested positive for the virus in their or: #dae8f4'>throats. I know both doctors in the forum to be experts in the area, and I was wondering if your low ror: #dae8f4'>isk stance has changed since these recent studies have been publor: #dae8f4'>ished? 3.
Avatar m tn It also helps to inhibit the growth of oral cancer that or: #dae8f4'>is caused due to tobacco. But tulsi should not be used as a sole treatment of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> however. 13. Stress Reliever: The anti-oxidants present in Tulsi help in balancing different processes of the body. Drinking Tulsi extract daily smoothes the nervous system and helps to relieve stress. 14. Lung Dor: #dae8f4'>isorder: Several compounds present in tulsi like Vitamin C, camphene, Eugenol can cure lung congestion.

Avatar n tn in it when I awake in the morning, and am getting paranoid that I'm giving myself either <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cancer</span> or some esophagal problem... I have GOT to stop thor: #dae8f4'>is gum addiction NOW. It's been over 5 months now that I'm on it. Definitely NOT the recommended way of doing it, according to Nicorette's instruction booklet! (Although I'm sure that they do not mind in the slightest that I'm now addicted to using THEIR product now...!).

I have a great deal of tension in the back of my neck and in my jaw. I feel like my tongue or: #dae8f4'>is constanstly being flexed and pulled into the back of my mouth. At times my tongue feels heavy and clumsy, not so much weak as just uncordinated. I guess my question or: #dae8f4'>is, can muscle tension in my neck and face cause speech abnormalities.
