Throat cancer effects

Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer effects


Avatar n tn I feel like I have something stuck in my lower throat. I am uncomfortable when I swallow. Nothing hurts, its just really annoying. I am on 100mcg of Synthroid. Could this feeling still be residual RAI in this area of my throat? Is this something that will get better with time?
Avatar n tn Aside from medications that may help with symptomatic relief, you can also try complementary and alternative treatment which may help you cope with the diagnosis as well as the side effects of throat cancer treatment. Acupuncture, massage therapy, meditation and relaxation techniques may also help. It is best that you discuss this with your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn I wish that i could give you some advice on the meds, but i do not know enough about that I do know about cancer, my husband had it his was cancer of bladder, it is now in remssion, but then he had a stroke, and is a shut in we are older people, All i can give you is Hope, Give your wife all the love you can, yes the Dr should inform you on all medications.
Avatar f tn Hi. No. From your description, it doesn't seem to me like throat cancer. Your doctor is probably correct in diagnosing it as an infection, although it may be viral instead of bacterial, which may be the reason why it does not seem to be responding to the antibiotics. The other reason why the infection has gotten prolonged instead of resolving is the fact that you have continued smoking intermittently. Cigarette smoke impairs the immune system, so it would be best for you to quit.
Avatar f tn My throat hurt for months afterwards. I had my thyroid removed, but I still feel constriction in my throat and the tightness in my chest that I started to experience after the fna. Could they be related?
Avatar n tn I am at the early stages of PPT (I also have postpartum anxiety) my endocrinologist put me on Tapazole 2 weeks ago. I have a mild soar throat but I believe it's merely the remnants of a cold. However, I am losing an insane amount of hair, above the average hair loss due to postpartum. Is this the combo of thyroid, meds and postpartum... I'm on tapazole 10mg daily dose. Is there something I can do? I had my blood work done on Friday and WBC was normal... does it fluctuate easily?
Avatar n tn No reproductive effects from chlorine exposure have been reported. In general, chemicals affect the same organ systems in all people who are exposed. A person's reaction depends on several things, including individual health, heredity, previous exposure to chemicals including medicines, and personal habits such as smoking or drinking.
Avatar n tn I am so paranoid now that since I had oral with her that the virus particles are in my throat and will eventually give me throat cancer, or that her giving me oral will cause me to get cancer down there. I know I sound pathetic, but I don't know what else to do.
Avatar n tn And for my throat i feel a lump in my throat no sore throat i just feel like if i have to swallow .I started smoking last july of 2011 and Quit right after my symptoms. So i get to the er i tell them all my symptoms and the doctor tells me you dont look sick, i also told them about a lump i have next to my throat and the dr said i cant feel anything. The doctor told me its impossible you to have cancer after a year of smoking. i forgot to mention i also lost 20 pounds.
Avatar f tn For about 4 years now, I've had this weird lump in my throat. It's not there all the time but I notice it mostly at night. It feels like I have to keep swallowing my saliva. It keeps me awake and I'm really worried that I have cancer in my esophagus. I rarely get heart burn and it's the only symptom that I have. Is it possible that I have Barrett's esophagus?
Avatar f tn I knew only at that time that hpv caused cervical cancer and thought men were just carriers with no ill effects. Anyway times have changed and now weve learnt that Michael Douglas had throat cancer from hpv and are a bit worried for ourselves. Can you explain his chances of developing this cancer and what we can do to be proactive about it, such as oral screenings. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Lymphomic cancer is cancer in the lymph system, lymphoma. There are lymph nodes in every part of the body even in the lungs. Has she had any swelling? How often is the fluid getting in her lungs? Some people actually develop lymphedema and the fluid settles in the lungs as well.
Avatar n tn Assuming the sore throat was the result of the sexual encounter are their any other tests that I should consider? Test for HPV cancer causing types? Can a general throat swab be done to see what grows? Fungal concerns? Any insight you can provide beyond the common scenarios would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn I have the exact same problems as babydoll727 was wondering if you found out what was wrong with you this in return may be what is wrong with me. Please reply soon I am having a CT scan of the pelvis Monday. The doctor put me on Senna and I felt great but read side effects and quit taking them now problem has returned and I was wondering if there is something I can take that doesent cause cancer or long term effects I want something safe!
Avatar m tn Immediately after taking them, I felt good and a lot of the troubles I have been having with my mouth(white spots on tongue, sore throat) disappeared. Then, on the fourth day, it all returned with a vengeance. Sore throat, dry cough, white coated tongue, and since then has only gotten worse. I stopped the Zantac after about 12 days and on that day my neck started to ache like crazy. The day after I was in pain and had a bad sore throat, still dry coughing. Is this a side effect of the Zantac?
Avatar f tn Cough is one of the side effects of Herceptin but any of the side effects usually occur within 24 hours of administration of the drug. Some have been known to occur later though. This drug should be used with caution in persons who have previous lung disease. I don't know if she is taking any medication for high blood pressure but many of these drugs do cause the symptoms you mention; just a thought. Can't really shed much light on the subject ... just keep looking I suppose.
Avatar f tn The neck lymph nodes can be due to tonsillitis, pharyngitis (infection of upper throat), infection in mouth, caries in tooth, internal ear infection, outer ear infection, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, breast cancer etc. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. Please discuss this with your doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn The long haul is certainly a mental challenge along with the physical effects, especially early in trt. Hope the sore throat improves.
