Avatar f tn My dad has been fighting throat cancer for the last year or so and has been told he has 6 months. He has been very strong and we are still praying for God to work his magic. Until then my question is he has been swelling in his face and has been taking a steroid to help with the swelling, but this past week it has gotten worse.

Avatar n tn Its the same color as the rest of my mouth and the only thing thats abnormal about it is that i dont have a similiar lump on the other side of my throat. There is some mucus build up in my throat and theres a slight pressure on both of my ears that occurs occassionally. It also seems my breath has been alot worse lately.
