Avatar f tn Every winter I lose my voice. My throat doesn't get sore anything but it gets real dry. It almost feels like, and this is gonna sound gross but I don't know how else to describe it, there is hardened snot in my throat. When I eat something or drink something warm it kind of breaks up a little and I can cough some of it up but it's not phlegm. It's like a real hardened snot kind if like the consistency of a just moistened corn flake.

Avatar n tn You should definately see an ENT. I lost my voice for 6 weeks after surgery, even though my vocal cords were not damaged during surgery. It sounds like it needs to be done. My tumor was also large 4.8cm.
Avatar n tn My husband has/ had throat cancer. He went through kemo and radiation. He is going to tested Fri. to see if treatment worked. He still has very bad breath. Also 2 other spots have shown up too. He also has a large lump on his leg.
Avatar f tn ve also been losing some weight and am extremely fatigue and throat is sore and voice is hoarse. The tumor has grown over 1cm in 10 days as well. PLEASE share your thoughts on whether or not u suspect it is thyroid cancer. Also do not have any thyroid cancer in family, only breast cancer. I am 34 yr old mother of 3. I'm so stressed and freaking out!!! Look forward to hearing your thoughts!
Avatar m tn I went to an ENT in September concerned I might have some type of throat cancer. Especially since Michael Douglas came out saying he had it and was hoarse. The ENT said I was not at high risk because I don't smoke or drink but since I was so concerned he looked at my throat and voice box with a scope. He said every thing looked normal except for a little swelling in the back of my throat. I've started taking my medicine for reflux again but don't really see much improvement.
Avatar f tn 8 months ago I started getting strange sensations in my throat. It is like a tight feeling and mucus seems to collect in my throat. My voice has been hoarse for the entire 8 months. I have been taking protonix every day. I haven't had insurance which is why I don't go to the doctor. I am overweight and I am working on losing the weight. I am worried it is cancer because it hasn't improved in 8 months.

Avatar f tn It could be due to varied causes like upper respiratory tract infection like laryngitis or pharyingitis, head and neck cancer, oral cancer, reflux laryngitis in people who have acidity and GERD, muscle abnormality, voice box abnormality, polyps, tumors or weakness of voice box etc. Hope this helps.

Avatar f tn I read somewhere that having hypothyroid can effect your voice? I keep losing my voice to the point of not being able to sing at all. I am a singer and a teacher and really need my voice! I am currently on Armour and am trying to figure out my correct dosage. Can my hypothyroid problem be playing a part in me having no voice anymore? Any suggestions for a super frustrated singer?
Avatar n tn Both cause some thyroid enlargement, occassional hoarse voice and sore throat - but PPT does the latter two more commonly. Hair loss is due to postpartum and the hyper combo - not likely the tapazole - it will stop usually within 2 months of starting.
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 It can cause fungal infections, hoarseness, and temporary loss of voice. You may need to have a throat culture done to make sure you do not have a fungal infection. I am not saying that this is the only possible reason you have problems losing your voice, but I would put it at or close to the top of the list. Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn Hello I have been having some Throat Tightness, Its a feeling like a choking sensation, it doesn't bother me all of the time just every now and then. I am only 16 years old. Sometimes I have throat pain. I have had this a lot of my life, it comes and goes, sometimes it will stay away as long as a year or so, but somehow it manages to come back. Do you think that this could be some type of cancer of the throat? I did have a lot of sore throats when I was younger.
Avatar f tn What do you mean "some tissue?" Like a goiter, "growth" My sons both had mono & never lost their voice. My youngest son had so many strep throat cases that he finally got his tonsils & adnoids removed at 5 years old. Never lost his voice. Why is he losing his voice?? From "some tissue," his thryoid, or what? What was the doctors explanation on why he has no voice. That would be my question.
Avatar m tn About 4 weeks ago I noticed a change in my voice. It's not so much hoarseness, but almost nasally sounding. At first, I thought it might be a sinus infection (although I've never had any sinus problems). I did feel sick at one point with a clogged head and general weakness, but those symptoms went away. I can't really tell where it's coming from and now I'm not even sure if the change is nasal or just different.
Avatar f tn Hello and welcome to the forum. I'm glad you've seen your doctor and that they've been treating you. If they suspected throat cancer, I am sure they'd do the necessary tests to check on that diagnosis. Here is a link to information on throat cancer including the symptoms that people typically suffer. https://www.mayoclinic.
865758 tn?1285952904 Ok I am experiencing so many symptoms with my lovely Hashi's but lately I keep losing my voice or it is very hoarse. Is this normal? My levels are not good with my Free T4 being very low but I have resumed a new med and it has only been 11 days since I started it. My ultrasound I had done due to soreness and diffuculty swallowing only showed severe inflammation. Is the inflammation causing problems with my voice? Is this normal?
