Avatar m tn However there is a weird feeling always there regardless of smoking or not but it gets worse when smoking (cigarettes or marijuana but the marijuana is worse). The feeling makes me want to constantly swallow as to clear something from my throat and its only on my right hand side. I have now quit smoking Marijuana (I quit cigarettes 6 months ago) and have begun using Prilosec as I was told to 10 months ago.

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.
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.
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 m tn I am also feeling pain in the left side of my throat from yesterday and from past 4 days my motion is not coming good and I feel heaviness and warmness in the left side of my stomach more upwards than downwards.thankyou for replying me I really appreciate it.
Avatar m tn May just be sore from healing after quitting smoking and was very sensitve when he started smoking again.
Avatar n tn ve smoked has been inconsistent... ill go from not smoking at all to smoking socially to once in a while owning a pack.... well anyway, my question is this: ive heard that oral hpv can be acquired through oral sex, and this greatly increases the chance of throat cancer. now i dont really think theres much reason to be worried but the fact that i could potentially have oral hpv and that i smoked (i just quit recently) i'm kind of letting my imagination run wild here.

Avatar m tn Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks, caffeine, and spicy food. See if these tips help. If they do not help consult your doctor. Take care!
Avatar f tn So I'm 20, started smoking about 5 months ago. Just got little bumps on my throat with no pain.
573038 tn?1235394545 First off stop smoking! It's a horrible habit and you can get really sick from smoking. My grandma is dying of lung cancer because of smoking. You need to have your lungs check out, I'm suprised they didn't already. Have they checked your throat to make sure its not throat cancer? My grandma had that same lump feeling in her throat and it ended up being throat cancer. I'm not saying you have cancer, but please get all these things checked out.
Avatar m tn Hi, i'm 29. I have been a smoker for 7yrs, I recently have felt constriction after smoking cigarettes. I decided it was best to quit smoking. I haven't smoked in over 2 weeks, however now I feel a different feeling in my throat pressure against my throat (choking) type. I also noticed redness on my soft palette with a single white spot in the center. I visited a family Dr, he tested for strep, it was negative. He believes it could be viral my temp was 99.
Avatar m tn i feel a burning sensation in the area where the sore is in my throat with radiating pains to the ear on the same side of the throat. i have since stopped smoking and cut down on my alchohol consumption. i feel very sick that i will need your advice to help deal with the problem.
Avatar m tn I should preface this by saying that I am an extreme hypochondriac, but occasionally I notice a very small (oftentimes no more than a speck, sometimes slightly more) amount of blood in my spit. It's worth noting that I am a smoker (I know, trying to quit!) and that this ONLY has ever happened when I try hard, almost violently, to bring up phlegm (you know the gross sound), and I'm 29 years old, for what it's worth.
Avatar f tn It could also be due to oral cancer or lung cancer, which is common in smokers. Since he can only eat proteins maybe he has developed gluten, starch or carbohydrate allergy. He needs a comprehensive investigation taking all these points in consideration. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. Please discuss this with your doctor and the investigations done accordingly. Do let me know if there is any thing else you want to know. Take care!

Avatar n tn sometimes i feel cold, slight pain in chest and then light blood when i clear my throat. i don't know exactly whether it is from throat or teeth but i feel it is from throat as i feel chest pain before and after blood for hours.
Avatar f tn You have a higher chance to getting cancer from smoking than you do from smokeless tobacco. Cigarette smoke contains 60 carcinogens while smokeless tobacco contains 28. Smokeless tobacco is BY NO MEANS safe, and the risk of oral cancer DOES exist, but it is LESS than smoking.
Avatar n tn It feels like a lump in the back of my throat, and feel like im not getting enoughair ,also i have a weird feeling from the back of my throat to the middle of my chest, almost like a numbing sensation or dry throat.I seen a doctor and was put on amoxacilin and prilosac but that still did not help, then he ordered a MRI and a barium swallow which showed nothing but a little acid reflux.still taking the prilosac but still have the same symptoms.Is there anything else you would suggest i do.
Avatar n tn In that case you should have a good exam of your nose and throat by an ENT specialist, a chest X-ray and 3 sputum cytologies, looking for cancer cells in your sputum. If you are only 25, with the same smoking history, you might want to wait until it happens again; that is blood again in your mucous. Anywhere in between these two scenarios, you could go either way but the closer to age 35, the safer for you to have this looked-into now.
