Re: what are the chance of 28 year old haing throat cancer

When my friend was diagnosed at 38 years old the doctors were surprised and said it used to mostly affect older men who smoked and drank for years but now are seeing it more in younger people. my friend smoked and drank but also had a history of cancer in his family. Did the doctor say he might have throat cancer because of a fever and blood in his saliva? I'm not sure about that, cause my friend had a lump in his neck. Get to an ENT and find out for sure. It can be treated. My friend is now 4 years out and he was a stage 4.

Re: what are the chance of 28 year old haing throat cancer

I am 41 and 7 months out of treatment for throat cancer. I was 38 when I began having symptoms, yet I went undiagnosed for 3 years. I was a non-smoker, occasional drinker and health nut. This delayed my diagnosis, as I did not fit the profile of a throat cancer patient. My tumor was caused by the HPV virus, and more and more younger and healthier people are coming down with throat cancer due to HPV. I had a tonsillectomy, chemo, radiation and a feeding tube. I am back to work, and also running again. Best of luck to you and your boyfriend.
