Common Questions and Answers about How does throat cancer kill you


2099644 tn?1333410460 now i have a lump in my face up under the skin. you can not see it, but it does hurt when touched. I want to know can cancer spread from your throat to your face. I have had the radiation treatment for my thyriod surgeries, was told that the radiation would kill off the rest of the cancer tissues. Or because cyst run on my mother side of family, and I have had so many already removed, is there a chance this could be a knew cyst? and it could be cancerous?
Avatar f tn There are no experts on this website, it's just folks. What I can tell you is that cold weather has no effect in and of itself on getting sick. That has to do with your immune system, and sometimes cold weather does put stress on people that causes the immune system to weaken. But you say you've had 3 throat infections, and an infection is a very different thing from getting a cold or having a sore throat as a result of getting the flu.
Avatar m tn No, it's not likely to be cancer. It takes several months to several years for HPV to develop into cancer. There is something called globus pharyngeus that may be what you're experiencing - That's from anxiety, but you should see your doctor to rule out anything with a physical cause, like GERD/acid reflux, or a digestive disorder.

Avatar f tn I don't think it's that maybe it's from acid reflux
Avatar n tn What were the symptoms that made you get your throat checked out? How old are you? Are you saying you caught this from just kissing??
272338 tn?1252280404 Cindy, it is good to hear from you. I hope that you are doing much better now and that your treatments are working. I see to many articles like this and hear too much from the Dr, that I would just be very leery of it. Since the chemo is what is keeping many of us alive, why would any of us do anything to jeopardize the way that it works?
1380814 tn?1285965586 For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn I suggest you see an Ear nose and throat specialist. They will be able to take a look in your nasal area as well as in your throat. So suggest to your family doctor you would like to see your local specialist.
616568 tn?1223243967 my mum was diagnosed with throat (voicebox) cancer in nov 07,she had surgery to remove her voicebox,tyroid & what i think was called spitall tube? the op was successful & she went on to have radiotherapy.
Avatar n tn They did a videostrobe of my throat last week. The doctor told me today I had throat cancer. My voice is gone. I had a left side carotid endarectomy 2 days before Christmas. All of my symptoms started after the surgery, like the day after, the sore throat was there when I woke up in ICU. I saw my family doctor, the surgeon who did the endarterectomy and an ENT locally, all said my symptoms were due to the endarterectomy. The first ENT I saw did a scope of my throat and said all was well.
Avatar f tn If so, i would also invest in a lot of pepto bismol to help coat the throat to reduce damage- just to be extra cautious- as acid in throat can sometimes lead to cancer- which you no doubt know- The pepto will help soothe the stomach also- but it can be a bit hard to get used to taste- I had bleeding ulcer that came close to taking my life, and doc put me on acid reducer meds but also recommended i have a steady intake of the pepto to take throughout the day too- Acid meds like prilosec are lo
Avatar m tn expert here advised me not to worry it,but today i am felling body hot and some sore throat,its make me extremely worrying.
1288270 tn?1301287612 You're vague on this. How do you know you have an "ulcer" on your tonsil? Are you assuming it's and ulcer? Either way you need to have this checked out by your doctor to find out exactly what it is. We could guess but that's all it would be is guessing. See your GP and go from there.
Avatar f tn How are you going otherwise? Are you sleeping and eating ok? How often do you worry about this feeling? It is possible it is globus sensation. I have had this in the past when particularly anxious. It really feels like something is there but there isn't. When my anxiety was treated the feeling went away and I haven't had it since. Take care.
Avatar n tn Hi, How is your husband? Can you elaborate on the spots and lump on the leg that you mentioned? Throat cancer refers to cancerous tumors that develop in the throat, voice box or tonsils. After treatment, follow-up exams every few months during the first two years is done to allow your doctor to monitor recovery and check for a cancer recurrence.
Avatar f tn Thank you for your reply. What makes you think its not throat cancer? Is it because it went away for a week before coming back? i am in a state of panic. Could stress worsen the symptoms. Please help.
Avatar f tn She is currently dying as a result of the chemotherapy, not the cancer. She tests cancer free. My sister had liver cancer. She had the tumor removed and went the alternative route. It is now almost nine years since the surgery and she is cancer free. Was it because of alternative medicine? No one knows.
