My throat has been hurting when I swallow and now I am coughing alot. I read that throat cancer has these symptoms. I also read that people have lumps on their neck/throat. I donít know where to look for those lumps. Do I look for it inside my mouth or outside on my neck? Please let me know... Thanks.
I found my lump on the outside of my mouth under my jaw (like when you have a sore throat your glands get swollen). You should go see a doctor if you think that you have found a lump, or are having throat problems.
thanks for your reply... i can't find any lumps where you indicated but i am still worried and i should go see a doctor but i don't have health insurance and i don't really know how to go about seeing someone or who to even go see... ENT i guess? does anyone know how much a visit will cost? i would appreciate any and all replies... thanks...
I have been to an ENT six times now. Had a ct of my neck last october, three scopes (through my nose to my vocal cords), neck xray, neck ultrasound, but nothing since this past January. I have had a sore throat since June of 2002. The ent says it's nothing and if it were cancer he would have seen it easily. I'm afraid i have tonsil or throat cancer. My jaw hurts sometimes on the right side, the right side of my neck and my throat.
