Re: Throat cancer.

If you smoke and you have a consistant cough you need to have your doctor send you to a ENT for a scope of your throat. My sister has imaginary illnesses also and has had for 50 years but once in a while she is truely ill so its best to have a check up. I would say, however, you are eating less and that is why you are losing weight.
Most cancer patients lose weight during treatments or in the way later stages of the disease.

good luck and God bless,

Re: Throat cancer.

Thats okay. I have just finished my radiation treatments for throat cancer last week. I will know when I get my scope on the 9th. of next month if I am cancer free for the time being. With throat cancer you generally have a cough, a sore throat for over two weeks, a raspy voice, a hard time swallowing, coughing up blood streaked mucus, a sore in the mouth, or a feeling of having a lump in your throat.
Yes it can be caused by smoking, by GERD, by a virus, by heavy use of alcohol and some poisonous gasses. it more frequently occurs in older people past the age of thirty and mainly in the 40-60 age group. If you ever do get any of the symptons of throat cancer or any cancer please see your doctor.

Good luck and God bless,
Barb~

Your cough is normal for someone who smokes. I had a persistent cough/throat clearing (stuffiness/mucus) until I quit smoking several years ago. After a few months, like magic, it went away and I bet yours will too!

Let me just say that I think that you are very brave for the hard work you are doing to confront your anxiety issues. I suspect that what you are doing now takes more courage than most people have, and I very much respect your committment to yourself and your hard work with your ongoing treatment.

I wish you the best.

Re: Throat cancer.

You might also want to get checked for a thrush infection, which can also cause a persistent throat clearing...
cheers

Hi, I just joined board and saw your reply. I've been smoke free for eight weeks but still have some coughing spells, stuffed up spells and I clear my throat a lot. Always have 'stuff' in back of throat. Is this a leftover from smoking and will go away or do you think I have another problem? Thanks.
