Avatar n tn for about 3 or 4 weeks now, i have had a greenish/yellowish mucous at the very back of my throat, its not there all the time, but is always present when i wake up. I dont have a sore throat or blocked nose, or fever, but have some aching in my neck and my throat looks a little red.
Avatar n tn At the base of it, sometimes it is painful and radiates out. I sometimes burp slightly. I have had acid reflux in the past, but my current symptoms do not feel the same. What is the difference between Gaviscon, Famotidine (20mg) and Nexium (40mg)? I have been prescribed all three. I would prefer to find a more natural solution. I have pressure behind my right eye and tingling on the right side of my head that extends from the font of my head to the base of my skull.
Avatar m tn Also... cancer does not develop in a few weeks. A lump in the back of your throat from an exposure a few months ago seems very unlikely. Also, everyone can see the veins in the back of their throat. I just checked... I can too.
Avatar f tn There are many medical articles that demonstrate a link between HPV in the throat and throat cancer. I have had a large number of unprotected oral sex partners, and I wonder if there is a chance that I have developed cancer in my throat. The first doctor assured me that I didn't have cancer, since my symptoms have been going on for so long and I haven't developed night sweats or weight loss.
Avatar n tn Several weeks ago I developed a persistent sensation of having a pill stuck in my throat. The sensation is getting more pronounced each week. A laryngoscopy indicated no abnormalities. Barium swallow shows that the liquid goes down the left side of my esophagus. I have no significant history of reflux, no visible swelling, and no other symptoms. My alcohol consumption averages three beers a day. My concern is that I may have esophageal cancer.

Avatar f tn My 82-year old Dad, who is in good health, has been getting very hoarse in his throat for going on a year now. His voice isn't too bad in the a.m., but around 12:00, he starts getting hoarse. By nighttime, you can't even understand him. He says nothing hurts him, it's just he can't speak. Can you help me with this This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/227106'>throat/hoarseness symptoms 6weeks and counting</a>.
Avatar n tn Hoping someone can help...I have had a feeling in my throat that is only apparent when I speak for 5 months now. It's like there is something there, maybe a lump, but I only really feel it when I speak. It's almost like there is something "flapping" and sometimes it feels a little lower in my throat, sometimes a little higher. It feels near my tonsils.

Avatar n tn Hi. That bump in the back of your throat is most probably not lung cancer. Lung cancer usually presents as a solitary lung nodule on chest x-ray or CT scan, and may be accompanied by symptoms of chronic cough and unexplained weight loss. As far as I know, lung cancer rarely, if ever, presents as a throat mass. However, heavy cigarette smoking does increase your risk of developing cancer in the mouth and throat areas, so my first advise for you is to quit smoking now.
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 n tn my son has a thick white pus coming from his tonsil, but he has no other symptoms.

Avatar f tn i would like to know if there is an odor with throat cancer,and what the other symptoms are
Avatar f tn For about 4 years now, I've had this weird lump in my throat. It's not there all the time but I notice it mostly at night. It feels like I have to keep swallowing my saliva. It keeps me awake and I'm really worried that I have cancer in my esophagus. I rarely get heart burn and it's the only symptom that I have. Is it possible that I have Barrett's esophagus?
