Hi,

 

I am having throat pain for last 5 days and it is not cold. I am a regular drinker (not heavy but take 2-3 pegs of 60 mls) and a occasional smoker. Can this this be related to it..what are the symptoms of throat cancer and how do you diagnose it? I just read that pain in throat can be linked to cancer, what are the other symptoms to look out for?

 

BR,

Anoop

yes it can be symptom of throat cancer but it is not sure 100%. I had the same condition and doctors said it is muscle pull in the throat which is causing these symptom. He gave me medicine and everything was alright. I would suggest that rather than posting on forums and waiting for answers one should go to the doctors for resolution and can then check in the forums. Please dont delay going to the doctor as the delay can have a difference between life and death.

r_100 is right. You could see doctors, it could be worse if not treated.

Throat cancer refers to cancerous tumors that develop in your throat (pharynx), voice box (larynx) or tonsils.Throat cancer can also affect the piece of cartilage (epiglottis) that acts as a lid for your windpipe. Tonsil cancer, another form of throat cancer, affects the tonsils, which are located on the back of the throat. These are the signs and symtoms of throat cancer, 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, Weight loss. Make an appointment with your doctor if you notice any new signs and symptoms that are persistent. Most throat cancer symptoms aren't specific to cancer, so your doctor will likely investigate other more common causes first.
