Throat cancer pain

Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer pain


Avatar m tn I am a 21 year old non smoker, currently suffering a few days of neck pain, with occasional pain swallowing, sometimes minor ear ache (only on left side). I once had an inflamed lyph node (some months ago) but then nothing unil now. I have a history of hypochondria, and identifying pains with no cause, and was begining to worry about having pancreatic cancer or some bowl problems before, but this certainly seems real. Pain comes and goes.
Avatar n tn I have noticed on/off for several years that I get a sharp buzzing pain on the left side of my head in the throat area. It happens once in a great while where I will be fine one minute and then all of a sudden I get this sharp buzzing pain, then after a few seconds it goes away. I have only had this about 1-2x every 6months-1year but when it comes it is really painful and scares me. No other symptoms.

Avatar n tn My husband was diagnosed with throat cancer the end of October of 2008 and he is now more than 1/2 way through his treatment which is - 36 radiation and 3 chemo treatments. He has had a feeding tube (PEG) placed little over a week ago and now pain is so severe in his throat isn't eating at all and swallowing very little water. He is having the thick white mucous so bad that he is spitting in a cup all day long and at times is chocking. Does anyone have any suggestions for us?
Avatar m tn Once or twice I observed little amount of blood in mouth while deep spitting in last two months. I am afraid if this is a throat cancer. Does throat cancer makes bleed frequently ? Please help me what kind of diagnosis I have to go for, I don't have insurance, and no money as well :( .
496495 tn?1224609863 Hello I am a 28 year old male and I am concerned about throat cancer. Almost 2 and a half weeks ago I had laid down to take a nap and when I awoke I had weird pain on the left side of my throat when I swallowed. This lasted for about a day and got a lot better but there was still some minor pain every so often when I swallowed. I do have acid reflux and allergies with bad post nasal drip and had a scope about 2 and a half years ago showing some minor irritation around my focal cords.
Avatar m tn Then by time the pain became more aggravated by mouth movements like yawning talking ... Then few days ago the pain became persistent but in a low grade pattern like a cold then it became again burning severe after eating and aggravated by the same factors mentioned before ..

Avatar m tn 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. But I don't seem to have as many of them now, but I do have the tightness problem.

Avatar m tn A couple of months ago i began to experience a sore throat. It was a low level (as far as pain) but persistent. After a few tests for strep, and round of antibiotics etc I was sent for an ultrasound. They found a lymph node in my neck that is 3cm in size. I am scheduled for a biopsy. Presently, the throat issue has been on and off for 2-3 months. At times it feels as if my throat is "hot" around the roof of my mouth as well as at times feeling that there is a lump or bump in the back.
Avatar n tn t know if that makes sense, like when she is laying down it flows back into her throat) and so over the years, her throat has suffered from the acid...she also feels pain in her throat...her throat burns everytime she talks and swallows (occasionally). her voice has became rough/scratchy. she also feels a lump in her throat. help what is it? cancer? or ...
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 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.
Avatar n tn t complain about pain. Actually his cancer was on his tongue also back of his throat too. Dr. could not remove it by surgry. He snores but not as bad. He still has very bad breathe is that due to the cancer? The lump is on his groin area. Size of a quarter. Very hard, no redness and doesn't seem to hurt.
Avatar f tn I have had for a few months sharp, severe pain in upper throat on swallowing salad dressing or mayonnaise that has vinegar or fruit juice in it. No other symptoms. I find only supraglotteal cancer listed when I look on the Net for what this can be a symptom of. My ENT doctor had me get a barium swallow (stomach through larynx or most of larynx) which looked normal, and will be doing a more thorough exam (down-through-the-nose tube light, in-office); my mouth looked normal enough.
Avatar m tn I had vocal-cord cancer and received radiation treatments, Now I have scar-tissue in my throat. Which causes chronic pain in my throat and ears, I take vicadan. This doesn't seem to help any with the pain. Is there anything that would help with the pain.
Avatar f tn It started as a feeling of lump in my throat (couldnt feel an actual lump, just a sensation) and then went on to pain in upper throat behind the soft palate. Sometimes i have pain in my right ear. The pain is more pronounced on the right side. I have no other symptoms like headaches, fever, cold etc. The doctor seems to think its a baterial infection and has given antibiotics. The sore throat is more severe the moment i wake up in the morning and just before i go to bed.
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.
