Re: Scared... Could It Be Throat Cancer?
I would see a doctor. Cancer, that nasty little devil, has no limit on age. Smoking will cause throat cancer along with gerd, alcohol, acid reflux and many other things including genetics.
If you have a sore throat and a cough see your doctor. It may be nothing and yet it may be something. Early detection gives the best odds for a complete cure.
Good luck to you,
