Throat cancer mucus

Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer mucus


Avatar n tn My husband is recovering from throat cancer. Before he started treatment he has been hacking up a white foamy mucus from his throat and is still doing so. His ENT nor Radioation Doctor does not know why. Before he had Raidation and Chemo the foamy was worst than after treatment.
Avatar n tn m having now is with mucus. Whenever I eat, which is difficult, my throat produces amazing amounts of mucus. It is also there when I'm not eating but especially when eating. Is there anything that will eliminate the mucus?
Avatar n tn I went to ear and nose doctor and she told me that I do not have throat cancer. The mucus is from the acid reflux. I did start having acid in August. The past few months, I also had some serious allergy. I had stufffed nose in the morning. The mucus from the nose is white or clear. The past few days, there was blood in the mucus. Sometime it is yellow. I do not know if it is because I blow my nose os many times in the morning. I had neck ultra sound a few days ago. Everything si fine.
Avatar f tn I have the same symptons as MNG except herpes simplex and throat cancer. I have had bad allergies sinus infections W/post nasal drip, and a bad cold. I just have heavy mucus buildup where my nose meets my throat..When I cough it up , it hard to get it out. The mucus is really thick slimy and yellow w/small hint of blood. However, the blood onlycomes up if I sniff my nose really hard to get the yellow mucus up.. When I sniff softly, only the yellow mucus comes up.....pleez help me...
Avatar n tn Unfortunately the Mucinex made me ill and was wondering what else I can do to thin out the mucus. My concern is that I did have throat cancer two years ago with radiation treatment. That started with a hoarse voice. I have been waiting for 2 months for a referral to a different ENT. Going to the doctors takes at least one month to get an appointment. Any suggestions would really be helpful. Will nose spray like Floronase help?
Avatar m tn I have constant mucus in my throat and my ENT doctor found that I have deviated septum which causes post-nasal drip. She recommends me to be operated. However, I have also bloody mucus when I clear my throat in the morning and I can not find blood in my nose. I had CT scan of my lung 6 months ago which did not show any problem of cancer. Now I would like to know what the most probable reason of this bloody mucus is.
Avatar f tn has me on Advair 500/50, Ventolin HFA, and Spiriva. In addition to the coughing up mucus, I now have a Severe Raspy Throat and voice. It is hard for people to understand me at times, and I am worried because I know this is not normal for me. Do you think this could be throat cancer?? Please Advise.
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. Another thing i noticed is when my roomate told me it wasnt cancer and actually had a good argument the symptoms seemed to dim a little bit.
Avatar f tn Have You Went To A Doctor Yet ? Lol It’s Not Throat Cancer Only If You Smoke ..
Avatar m tn It causes difficulty swallowing, a feeling of mucus or thick phlegm in the throat, sensation of a ball in the throat (globus pharyngeus), chronic sore throat, chronic irritative cough, hoarseness, chronic throat clearing, frequent gagging and post nasal drip. Untreated LPR also may play a role in the development of cancer of the voice box. The prognosis for LPR is very good because most of the causes can be controlled if a healthy lifestyle is followed. Regards.
Avatar m tn As for having throat cancer, last time you had a sore throat, you took antibiotics and it went away. If it was cancer, antibiotics would not help at all. You have not been given antibiotics (yet) for this sore throat but there is nothing in your description which would indicate cancer. You would have many more symptoms if cancer were the issue. PLEASE DO NOT GOOGLE THROAT CANCER SYMPTOMS!!!! All you will do is cause yourself greater anxiety and there is no need.
Avatar n tn It has been for a while now every morning when I wake up I spit mucus with blood?
1534024 tn?1294246075 about a week later I went home for Christmas and my father in law had bronchitis. I must have contracted it because it started out with a sore throat then a really thick mucus draining in the back of my throat. My throat was itchy and my ears ached and itched inside aswell. as it progressed I couldn't breath hardly it felt as if someone was choking me slightly and I had to work harder to breath and i would cough up clear mucus. The only thing that helped was hot tea and taking hot baths.
958560 tn?1248985495 recently(two weeks ago), I had another chest xray that showed nothing abnormal and was reassured by a doctor that there were no signs of lung cancer or infection. SO...this mucus thing has been going on for almost three weeks's like my body just keeps making the stuff..I was at a job interview yesterday and all of a sudden, my nose clogs up as am talking and I feel this huge clog in the back of my throat and it felt like i could not breathe properly...
Avatar n tn When he gets up in the morning he used to cough a lot to clear his throat as he used to say the mucus builds up in the back of his throat. When he used to cough so much he used to get blood in his mucus/phylegm. He used to say that is the only time he used to get that. However, yesterday around 3:30pm he went to just spit without a cough and he had blood in his mucus. He says he spit three times and all three had blood. Then stopped after 3 spits.
Avatar n tn Then, about 6 months ago, I started waking up with a thick sweet putrid-tasting mucus in my throat that I would have to spit out, and then the mucus would, and does, stay there all day. I have been to ENTs and gastro doctors to no avail. I have some acid reflux which I take two Nexiums a day. All doctors say this is radiation effects, although I haven't met any other oral cancer patients who have such a taste.

Avatar n tn My father who has just finished radiation and chemo treatment for throat cancer is now having trouble returning to eating regular foods due to over production of a burning thick mucus. It happens when he eats but also happens when he is doing nothing. He has had a feeding tube for the last 7 months and has relied mainly on feeding himself through the tube. His doctors are telling him that he needs to start eating normally and that he is cancer free.
Avatar f tn I had an upper lobectomy,four cemo treatments,and have been cancer free also for two years.most mornings when I get up,therre is a thick mucus in my throat,and when I finally work it out it is dark grey,or even black.hould I be worried?Ans what is this?
Avatar m tn hi,relax,it is throat infection may be associated with ulcerations.A course of antibiotic along with antiseptic gargles and pain killers will help.May be some local anesthetic spray would be helpful. Please consult ENT sugeon to rule out other possibities. Relax and take care!
Avatar n tn I am a 29 year old female in great shape. Two weeks ago while exercising, I experienced shortness of breath. I panicked, which I know I get panic attacks, butI seemed to recover and be ok. The next day the same thing happened. I went to the doctor the next day and have since had a chest x ray (which was clear) and a pulmonary function test, and although it did not show asthma, it did show that I was not exhaling fully.
Avatar n tn Hi I am a smoker and experiencing a problem from couple of days. It seems like a small pile of cough (or mucus) is always clogged in my throat. Even if I try to push it down it's not going. I tried by having water and gulping foods with force. but no hope. It gives more trouble in night, I find it difficult to sleep as I feel like somethng is holding my throat. I once pressed the below the Adam's apple and gulped little bit of saliva. I think I felt little comforted.
