Avatar n tn I have a constant feeling of choking and feel the need to cough. I smoke and I am scared to death I have cancer. Can anyone give me any suggestions as to what this might be.
Avatar n tn But each person is slightly different depending on where the cancer is located. My Dad had cancer all through his body and bones (lung cancer mets) and he went peacefully. He gradually slowed down, less alert, no appetite. There are other little things people tend to do near the end but not worth mentioning here since they are not pain related. If you can arrange for hospice care, they can make the transition as peaceful as possible.
306245 tn?1244384967 she had pneumonia in Dec. had a pacemaker in Jan. so they decided that since her breast and throat cancer was gone the nest best thing was to remove her lung. they said she had a 99% survival rate with this. she made it through the surgery and just after they closed her up, her other lung filled with fluid and her right side of hte heart shut down casing 2 heart attacks. they waited until her twin arrive to say good bye. Polly gave a good fight for all of those years.
Avatar f tn You need to get that checked out and fast!!! My husband's uncle had the same thing. The Dr's didn't do anything about it until it had grown and started to effect him. By that time, he had full on esophoghaus cancer!!! It was stage 2 or maybe 3. They gave him a year. He lived a little longer due to alternative therapys he tried in other countries. He basically starved to death because the cancer ate away at his throat and he couldn't eat or even drink for the last month or so.

Avatar f tn s throat cancer or something serious. I would think having 2 thyroid ultrasounds something would be seen. Also no swollen glands or lymph nodes. I'm scared to death. Any help or support would mean the world. Thanks!
Avatar f tn I don't know if it comforts you much, but mouth cancer at your age is pretty rare, so the odds are in your favor.
Avatar n tn He went to his Internist who said it couod either be allergies, something environmental, or throat cancer. We are first treating it with allergy meds which he has been on the last 4 days. He seems fine in the morning and he gets more hoarse as the say wears on. He doesn't loose his voice, has no sore throat, no problem swallowing, and is not coughing up any blood. It's just a raspy voice, but the doctor threw that "C" word in which scare me to death even as a possibility.
1069143 tn?1471312610 The right side of my throat seems to be swollen and I have no pain, it just feels funny when I swallow. It has been this way for 4-5 days. A month or two ago I had a mouth ulcer on the right tonsil, it healed in 2 weeks. I am 17 years old and I do not nor have I ever used tobacco or drank alcohol. I worry alot about my health, not sure why, because I'm very healthy, but could this be cancer? I'm worried to death...
1069143 tn?1471312610 BTW, I am 17 years old and I do not smoke or drink.
Avatar f tn mother side has had tuberculosis and a death from throat cancer. I dont wanna go to dr unneccesarily but could cancer be a possibility?
Avatar f tn I'm 19, and I've always been a nervous person. As a child, I worried about everything. If my mom didn't answer my call, I'd think she's dead or If she sick, I'd think she's dying. For years, I stopped worrying and it came back in middle school. I got talked about a lot so, I'm nervous around big groups of people not an individual person. My worrying gets worse when something involving death is around. I fear death. Anything associated with it makes me very scared.
Avatar m tn Dear Doctor My dad is suffering from Lung cancer. He had a malignant cancer in his throat which was developed from a Scerosis he had on his scapula (on his skin). He is a diabetic patient. The cancer in his lung is FAST GROWING (as told to me by his docs) plus it has taken a form of COPD. This condition has lasted for around 5 years.
Avatar m tn I dont know of anyone else in my family that may have had any type cancer. Sence moms death i have ran to hospitals to be scanned and tested for cancers mainly lung ca. I guess my question is is how likey is my tonsil problem to be cancer?? Keep in mind before my tonsil got scratchy i nvr looked at it before in detail so i dont know the normal size for me. I only had a slight fever of 99.2 and that was cause my heat was wide open.

Avatar f tn I dont get the results until next week and im worried to death that i have throat cancer or lung cancer...i dont have a cough but after i eat i have trouble clearing my throat. i should tell you also that up until about a month ago i had a bad case of bulimia which has completely stopped i will never do that again i am soooo scared that i have caused irreversable damage.
Avatar m tn m scared to death. I do have several symptoms. Enlarged spleen, headaches, fatigue, sore throat, no weight loss but at times there has been. Please can someone tell me their story. I have an appointment with a Cardivascular surgeon/oncologist.
Avatar m tn Then I thought of the worst what if its HIV, I lost it and went crazy crying,praying. It was crazy. I went back In time and realized 10 after the I incident I had a soar throat that went away after a week. As I kept read the symptoms of HIV I would get them. I'm going crazy because I never had sex with her how could it be. I only have had two sexual partners in my entire life. One I had been with for 6 years strong and the other for a month. I always use protection.
Avatar f tn My biggest concern is, can the hole erode through a vein in my throat? I have always heard you can bleed to death from your tonsils, but I assume that would only be from having them removed. The ENT I saw said I didn't need to rush into a tonsillectomy, however, there are times when I get tonsil stones in that pocket and it is hard to clean it out. I am worried about tonsil cancer and also about the crypt or pocket enlarging and causing me to bleed.
Avatar m tn First off, DO NOT tell me that this is impossible because I know for a fact that it is because of the way my cancer spots come up. Yes, I'm HPV positive and have been for about seven years. I do not have the warts anymore. I did get a small few when I first contracted it but they soon went away and have never come back. What I do have are the lesions and they cover the all natural folds in my pubic area. I.
Avatar m tn m sorry to hear about this. Were you able to discuss the immediate cause of death with her doctors? Vomiting blood may be attributed to bleeding somewhere in the upper GI tract such as the stomach, mouth, throat, esophagus, and the first part of the small intestine. Blood that is vomited may come from any one of these places. With hepatitis B, possible complications include liver cancer, liver failure, cirrhosis, as well as esophageal varices that can bleed.
Avatar f tn Self diagnosis is generally wrong, and there are lots of things that can cause what you have decided must be cancer - googling for death is scaring you to death because you can always locate someone who tells you incorrectly that you can do a doctor's job.
Avatar n tn Now I am fixated with the bump and it has become tender probably from me touching it. I am scared to death that it is some sort of cancer related to chewing tobacco. I am very afraid. I have been reading several things relating to this and none of it is reassuring. Is this a swollen lymph node, a cancerous tumor etc? I am going to try to go to my pcp tomorrow but I doubt I will get much accomplished tomorrow besides saying we should set some tests up....Please help!
Avatar f tn I suffer from anxiety where I am convinced I have certain diseases or illnesses. It's gone from heart attack to bladder cancer to kidney infection to HIV and it slowed down a few months but I found out my back pain I have is a symptom of lung cancer.
Avatar f tn I went to an endo recently just to have my thyroid checked, due to another doctor saying it might be a bit enlarged. I have had difficulty losing weight, felt fatigued, have alternating dry hair, always extremely dry skin, but those were the only "symptoms" of anything that might be wrong.
Avatar f tn The vet did a necropsy and said it was microcoagulating clots that caused his death. All his other organs were fine. What does this actually mean?
331673 tn?1199354285 I was given a choice to either quit smoking and hope that we were early enough to have caught it, and hope that my throat repairs itself, or end up with throat cancer and all that goes with it. I quit smoking. My following check ups have been all good. I am LUCKY, because I didnt wait, I have lost to many friends and family to cancer, (on my husbands side even non smokers). So please dont wait, get to a Doctor. I may not be here today if I didnt Jump to it.
