Avatar f tn org/diseases-conditions/throat-cancer/symptoms-causes/syc-20366462 Those symptoms are A cough, Changes in your voice, such as hoarseness or not speaking clearly, Difficulty swallowing, Ear pain, A lump or sore that doesn't heal, A sore throat, and Weight loss. You obviously mention two of those, hoarseness and pain in tonsils and ears. I think it is a good sign that you improved to some extent with antibiotics.
Avatar n tn Do these symptoms sound like thyroid or throat cancer? Is there a way to rule out cancer? The idea of just waiting to see if the symptoms go away would make sense for most people. However, b/c of the HRT, I'm wondering if it makes more sense to be proactive in terms of screening.
Avatar n tn They look like little bumps in the back of my tongue and it fills ruff when I swallow. What are the symptoms of throat cancer? What do I have to look for?
Avatar m tn I am a 21 year old non smoker, currently suffering a few days of neck pain, with occasional pain swallowing, sometimes minor ear ache (only on left side). I once had an inflamed lyph node (some months ago) but then nothing unil now. I have a history of hypochondria, and identifying pains with no cause, and was begining to worry about having pancreatic cancer or some bowl problems before, but this certainly seems real. Pain comes and goes.
Avatar n tn Hi there, i have had a sore throat / neck area for the past 2 months. There is no other symptoms apart from when i swallow i get a pain on the right side of the neck by the adams apple. I dont have an actual sore throat otherwise, only when i swallow. No redness in the mouth, no bleeding etc. If i am eating and drinking swallowing does not hurt, only when i swallow my spit. Any ideas what this could be guys?
Avatar f tn t know if thats the reason for the enlarged lymph node! The thing is that 6 days ago my neck and tongue are sore but not like a regular sore throat its weird! It bothers me even when I move my tongue to the side and only the left side even my jaw hurts its unexplainable it only goes away when I take ibuprofen and after researching about my symptoms I'm scared! Now I'm panicking about it being throat cancer or something like that what can it be is it the thyroid? Cancer? I'm scared!!
Avatar m tn So, a few days ago I noticed a little ball in the side/lower back of my neck, and the lynph node under the right side of my jaw is swollen. I've have a fever, mildly sore throat, and have been feeling kinda shotty, but I'm not really "sick" (no flu symptoms). I'm thinking about going to a doctor, because I'm scared I might have thyroid cancer. Any help? Thanks.
Avatar n tn t have any other symptoms like a sore throat or lump in my neck. I am a former light to moderate smoker and petrified to go to the doc.
Avatar f tn At times, I struggle to swallow and experience Gerd-like symptoms. I am scared. I lost both parents to cancer (breast and multiple myloma). My sister also had thyroid cancer but all cancer was removed. Everything symptom I've experienced points to Esophageal Cancer and without insurance, I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn ve made it this long so must not be cancer? Anyway, my internist wanted a throat scope and review of US he ordered so sent me to an ENT. That visit was 90 seconds. he didn't know who I was, why I was there, didn't have or review my US and didn't even feel my neck while swallowing which seems the normal thing they do. He said is acid reflex and no need for anything further, see internist in a year.
Avatar n tn For nearly 3 months I have had a sore throat accompanied with stabbing/prickly sensations running through my neck (mainly goes to left side)...and the back of my neck is stiff. (I can move my head from side to side and make my chin touch my chest). But it still feels stiff in the back of my neck. And now for the last few days, I have been getting very painful sharp pains in my head.
Avatar m tn ve had a sore throat which has gotten better but have a sore tongue a strained voice and swollen neck glands. went to the doctor he said I don't have swollen lymph nodes but its swollen when I swallow something and it hurts and tends to get worse at night. i've never experienced this before I do have acid reflux which I take zantac for, and I don't smoke and i've stopped drinking alcohol for the past five days. what are the chances this could be neck cancer?
1277632 tn?1327594715 My lymph nodes do not appear to be swollen, and I wonder if its muscle related or might be related to a symptom of throat cancer. I cough from time to time, and oh yeah, it does feel uncomfortable when I swallow at times. The uncomfortable feeling is not just on a precise location, it seems to vary in location on my left side neck during different times of the day. I appreciate all the possible feedback guys Thanks.
Avatar f tn m beating it but when things like this happen it sends me back to the start and I google these things and all I see is things like cancer and stuff and I get myself really upset

Avatar f tn I am not the type to join these blurbs. However, my experience the last 2-3 years may be helpful to all of you who have had irregular menstrual cycles, marble feeling when swallowing, difficulty breathing sometimes, a start of a bump on the throat, and now burping. It started about 3 years ago when I noticed that there was a VERY slight bump on my throat near the "V" neck section. I saw 3-4 family doctors who all said, that is normal and goiters that tend to inflate and deflate.
Avatar f tn My neck has strange pains and pins and needles. The back of my neck hurts all the time. I do get pins and needles occasionally in my hands and feet. sometimes I get muscle cramps in my toes. My calves are always tight. Do you think any of these are related? Maybe to not having a thyroid? I've spoken to two doctors and they dismiss me. one suggested a sleep study because I'm overweight.
Avatar m tn Whereas in the past, the “face” of head and neck cancer was a man in his 60s with a history of heavy smoking and alcohol consumption, the men diagnosed with HPV oropharyngeal cancer do not smoke heavily and may still be in their 50s or younger, although older men are also affected. Dr. Wirth explains that HPV cancers show a specific pattern as to where they arise.
331673 tn?1199354285 i've been experiencing symptoms and i too have general symptoms of throat cancer. i'm in deep stress, cant think etc. Have prayer and stop googling symptoms for it will make it your anxiety worse.
Avatar f tn i read the internet as a recent update a few months ago that, hpv is one of the leading cause of cancer in the throat and neck for people between the ages of 19-24. my lymphnodes behind my ears have been swollen and seem to be getting bigger for like a year now. i have hpv also. im worried about it, should i go to the doctor or am i freakin out about nothing.
Avatar f tn A few weeks back, the lymph nodes in my neck, under the jaw on both sides have become swollen and tender. It hurts even when I do not touch them and simply move my neck around. My neck also feels very stiff. Along with this, I also have a chronic sore throat, very mild cough, ear ache (mainly feels like its present in the Eustachian tube) and jaw pain. For the past few days, I have also noticed a constant radiating pain in the middle portion of my back on the right side.
6590973 tn?1382738157 This is a discomforting feeling daily, and I had a ct scan of neck and chest (no cancer was seen directly) This lump feels like when you swallow a pill and it gets stuck in your neck. Please give me some advice.
Avatar f tn Hello, I first noticed my lymph nodes were swollen on the left side of my neck about 2 weeks ago. They may have been swollen longer than that, I'm not sure because I don't regularly feel my neck. I was concerned about it so I decided to go to the doctor. I explained my concerns to my doctor, told her I wasn't experiencing any other symptoms (no pain, sore throat, fatigue, loss of appetite, etc.) I also don't have swollen glands anywhere else.
Avatar f tn have been having difficulty swallowing, night sweats, fatigue, pain in neck, tooth pain, blurred vision, numb tongue, etc. i have no thyroid...but am being tested for throat cancer...saw him today, and he said my neuro should see me asap. he even had me call my neuro before i left his office. the neuro said if it is a stroke...he can not do anything. my oncologist said if neuro does not do anything...go to er asap..could this be thyroid, or stroke...or c1 fracture...
Avatar f tn Direct clinical examination and additional diagnostic tests may also be requested. While symptoms of throat cancer may include trouble breathing or speaking, frequent headaches, pain or ringing in the ears, trouble swallowing and ear pain; other conditions that cause these symptoms may need to be ruled out. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I posted this originally under gastroenterology but I thought I might get a better response here. Months ago I was struggling to swallow. I never experienced this before. It didn't hurt, I just had to really strain to swallow. Days before, I felt the sensation of something choking me but not intense. I currently do not have insurance but went to ER in a panic when I couldn't swallow. Even w/o insurance they performed MRI, CAT scan and bloodwork to my surprise.
