Avatar n tn my mother thinks she has throat cancer...i think barretts....since she was little she would always have her stomach acid flow through her throat.....( idon'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 me....

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 I went to see an ENT and he did a scope (went in through the nose and looked down at the throat), I had a CT of the throat, and an Ultrasound of my thryroid and a Upper GI Series (Barium Swallow). There was nothing he could see from the scoping, the CT came back negative, the Barium swallow showed mild to moderate acid reflux, and the ultrasound showed nodules (which the doc said was nothing to worry about). All in all everything that was done did not show any type of mass or obstruction.
Avatar n tn Often people mistakenly call the cancer in the thyroid throat cancer as the thyroid sits in the throat area. You would be best to post your question in the cancer forum.
Avatar m tn Anything is possible, but I think it would be accompanied by these symptoms # Hoarseness or difficulty swallowing -Hoarseness - Trouble breathing - Swollen lymph nodes, especially in your neck - Pain in your throat or neck, sometimes spreading up to your ears The fever, night sweats and lump could also be a sign of something not so serious like an infection or something more serious like cancer I would think that your symptoms could point toward lymphoma or thyroid cancer.
Avatar n tn luckily we caught it early and within a two months of diagnosis i am now cancer free. ask your dentist for an oral cancer mouth exam every time you get your teeth cleaned. if you have any doubts get it checkout. and try and quit smoking...it's for your best interest.
Avatar m tn What i want is what r the odds based on the symptoms i gave u? I wanna hear what all this can be because of not just cancer i do fear cancer but then again all the times i feared lung cancer tests showed me i was wrong even though i really thought i had it. So keep in mind i know it can be cancer and only a doctor can tell me im just asking what all else can cause this and what i can do at home to treat it to see if anything works..
Avatar m tn Is post nasal drainage a sign of throat cancer? 5: Does the weight loss, that happened over a 2 week period look concerning? Thank you for your insight!
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 n tn Your concerns are valid, even some people who do not smoke get lung cancer. The impact of a family member having one, may not really increase your risk for cancer (unless there are also a number of different other cancers in the family). Stay positive.
Avatar n tn I wrote this many years ago, and my husband problem was throat cancer. He had it treated and now is cancer free. Just wanted to update this. God Bless. In Christ Pam Holloway We prayed and believe we got a miracle and went for cancer treatment, he was cancer free by Dec.
Avatar n tn Hi, i have had a pain in my right hand side of adams apple only when i swallow for about 3 weeks. This went last week and i had no symptoms apart from 2 cankers come up on my tongue which were very sore. This morning i woke and the pain i had before has now started slightly on the left hand side of the adams apple. As i say it does not hurt unless i swallow when it feels uncomfortable. Also my glands in my neck have been swollen for about 4 weeks now. Are these signs of oral or throat cancer?
Avatar f tn doesn't sound at all like throat cancer. give strep time to clear up . have you ahd your gardasil hpv shot series yet?
Avatar f tn I also developed a sore on the same place were i have the lump that hasnt heal in over a walk but i didnt pay much attention to it due to the fact that i have acne but when i read throat cancer symptoms that really concerned me.
Avatar f tn Common causes are anxiety disorder,acid reflux or GERD,biliary disease,cranial nerve compression esp glossopharyngeal and vagus nerve and myasthenia gravis.Throat cancer is unlikely as other symptoms are also present along with feeling of lump in throat. The most common cause is gastro esophageal reflux disease - GERD. Diagnosis is by fibroptic laryngoscopy. Fiberoptic laryngoscopy also helps confirm the GERD diagnosis.
Avatar f tn org/diseases-conditions/throat-cancer/symptoms-causes/syc-20366462 Those symptoms are A cough, Changes in your voice, such as hoarseness or not speaking clearly, Difficulty swallowing, Ear pain, A lump or sore that doesn't heal, A sore throat, and Weight loss. You obviously mention two of those, hoarseness and pain in tonsils and ears. I think it is a good sign that you improved to some extent with antibiotics.
