Avatar f tn Common causes are anxiety disorder,acid reflux or GERD,biliary disease,cranial nerve compression esp glossopharyngeal and vagus nerve and myasthenia gravis.Throat cancer is unlikely as other symptoms are also present along with feeling of lump in throat. The most common cause is gastro esophageal reflux disease - GERD. Diagnosis is by fibroptic laryngoscopy. Fiberoptic laryngoscopy also helps confirm the GERD diagnosis.
Avatar m tn Go see an Ear, Nose and Throat doctor for a medical diagnosis. Usually people start with their dentist first if bumps are in the mouth area but if you feel something in your throat, an ENT doctor is best. Oral cancer is very curable if you get to it early. Please make an appointment.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately, true lung metastasis from a throat cancer means that the cancer is stage IVC, and absolute cure may sometimes be unrealistic at this point. The goal of treatment (usually chemotherapy) is palliation (control of symptoms, pain, etc.). I suggest you discuss all the options with your oncologist first. Regards and God bless..

Avatar n tn Hi, I understand your concern regarding your symptoms. Diagnosis of cancer usually warrants direct clinical examination and additional tests. At this point, it is difficult to give a definite diagnosis. Your medical history as well as family history are important considerations. Sore throat caused by strep usually resolves with medical management. If it persists, it is best that you go for follow-up with your attending physician for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn This disease tends to occur in the winter and spring but can occur year-round. The disease can cause a low-grade fever, headache, sore throat before the appearance of rash. The earliest specific sign of the disease is often bright red cheeks thus called slapped cheeks disease. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Avatar m tn Is it possible to acquire a genital strain of HPV, pass that on to the genitals of another partner, and then acquire HPV in the throat yourself through performing oral sex on that person?
Avatar f tn Hi, A cancer if unknown primary (CUP) is a diagnosis that is made when a metastatic cancer is detected, but all appropriate tests fail to reveal the primary (original organ where the cancer first started). Metastatic cancer results when cancer cells from the primary organ travel via blood stream or lymph fluid to a distant site and grow into a nodule or cancerous mass. CUP generally tends to be difficult to manage.
Avatar m tn During endoscopy your doctor examines your esophagus looking for cancer or areas of irritation and even biopsy can be taken to look for cancer cells. If you are not satisfied with your doctor’s diagnosis consult him again and clarify your concerns. Keep me posted. Best wishes and regards!

Avatar n tn My friend just got out of the hospital, he was being treated for pneumonia and asthma. His complaints include the feeling of being choked, phlegm in the throat that's hard to expel and he has to drink water so some phlegm will come out and whenever he has the choking feeling, he also gets dizzy and increased heartbeat. Together with this, he also has hoarse voice right now, and loss of smell. He is 27 years old.
Avatar n tn Should I go back in to that doctor and press for tests that would rule out any kind of throat cancer? I know the chances are probably slim that's what it is, but if that's what it is, it's already been ongoing for more than a year (that I know of). Based on what I've described, is there a high likelihood that this is HPV throat cancer? Thanks so much for your help.
Avatar n tn t infect the oral cavities anyway for the reasons I mentioned above), and still oral cancer is very rare. Even though HPV can be found in oral cancer, the odds of you getting oral cancer are so low as to not be worth worrying about. If you see something of concern, have it checked out the next time you go to the dentist or doctor. I had them check out what I thought might be a lesion on my tonsils, come to find out they were apparently normal tonislar crypts. Felt a little silly after that one.
Avatar m tn The spots in your throat, bad taste and throat irritation could also be caused by the nasal spray - as any of us know who have inadvertently gotten water up our nose while swimming, it also goes down the back of your throat, which can cause irritation. One thing I would suggest maybe trying is (if you're using a decongestant spray) switching to a saline spray instead for a while and see if it not only helps the stuffiness, but also helps to alleviate the other symptoms.
