Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer white

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 Hi. That visible white sore on the left side of your throat is probably an exudate (discharge) from your tonsils which are located on the sides of your throat. As such, it's most likely a manifestation of an ongoing infection rather than throat cancer. Cancer takes some time to develop into a clinically detectable disease, usually years to decades. So even if you've been chewing tobacco for the past two to three years, it's probably too soon for full-blown cancer to manifest.
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 f tn You are saying that you had a bacterial throat infection back in December? Tonsilitis? Did you take antibiotics? White spots on your throat are not indicative of throat cancer.

It feels l smooth to the touch, almost like a blister.

Avatar f tn Sore in the back of throat. Just one that is sort of blotchy. Red inflamed area with blotchy white spots and is painful. It is not on the tonsils and is on the back of the roof of the mouth. Person is a smoker and drinker. Only one location.
Avatar m tn If present it could also be Leukoplakia, which is a condition where patches of keratosis appear as adherent white patches on the mucous membranes of the oral cavity and throat. It is a potentially pre-cancerous disease of the mouth and throat. A biopsy may help to diagnose this condition. The cause of leukoplakia is unknown, but tobacco, whether smoked, dipped or chewed, is considered to be the main culprit in its development. Treatment is with laser or cryotherapy.
Avatar f tn i have a 2-3cm lump in thyroid, biopsy tomorrow.
Avatar n tn I have looked on the internet because I have been having some changes to my mouth and throat. The back of my mouth has developed two white patches, one on each side, one larger than the other. I also have what looks like a red circular puffy bump on the side with the larger white patch. The very back part of my throat the deepest part I can see looks like it has small red and white bumps. It also has a brownish yellow coating in places.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. The swelling and discomfort could be due to a throat infection. It's unlikely to be due to throat cancer. White patches are common in many throat infections. The sore throat and tonsillitis which your son had may have contributed to it. In response to the infection the body produces soft white debris which collects in the tiny indentations in the tonsils called crypts. Repeated salt water gargles will help.
Avatar m tn I feel like its only one side of my tonsils that is larger than the other and I am very concerned that this is tonsil cancer it has been driving me nuts. This morning when I woke up I did have a white mass behind my throat, it looked like pus but by the time I went to the doctor it had gone away....I am assuming this was mucous collecting. I just needs some options about this.

Avatar f tn Ive been reading about how HPV is linked to throat cancer and I am EXTREMEMLY worried and freaking out, (because of my pre-cancerous condition in the past.) I do not smoke or drink, so ive read thats a plus. So, my overall question is.....I had both dysplasia and warts. I thought low-risk HPV gave you warts and high-risk could give you cancer. Is there a type that produces both? or is it possible I have two strains of HPV? Should I be worried about throat cancer?
Avatar m tn After rising PSA and prostate biopsy showed small low grade tumor a CT scan showed large bladder cancer as well. Prostate treatment put on hold until bladder treated. BCG caused white spots in mouth, white holes in tongue. Not fun, but it actually reduced swelling in throat and improved gum swelling readings. Two dentist cleanings confirm, best in about twenty years. Seamed to clear up low grade infection that had been present since teens.
Avatar n tn So a few days ago, three to be specific, I started having pain in my throat. It hurts to swallow and yes, there are white spots in the back of my throat. I'm always tired, but can't sleep, I'm not really running a fever as I can tell, I salivate constantly, I have had a constant head ache for the last two days, and my ears seem to have pressure that doesn't go away if I "Pop" them. I have a runny nose and pressure around the bridge of my nose.
Avatar n tn I have looked up pictures of strep throat and of oral cancer and it looks like cancer. I am scared that I have contracted hpv and now am developing orpharyngeal cancer. I also read about hiv causing most of oral problems and I was tested in March and came back negative. I also tested myself with an in home kit last month and it was negative. My question is what do I need to do in my next step? Go to a gyno? Ask for std testing? See an ent doc? See a cancer specialist? Get a shot for hpv?
