In late December / early January, I had some allergies / head cold. After that mostly cleared up, I started experiencing what felt like post nasal drip, except that I wasn't always runny nosed, and at times it almost felt solid. I developed a sore throat which has persisted for several weeks now. I have an urge to swallow a lot, and sometimes (not all the time) it feels like I'm trying to swallow something but it just won't go away. Other times it feels more like my throat is simply dry and/or sore.
I'm 30 years old, non-smoker, very light drinker (two or three drinks a month, at the most). I'm concerned it could be early stage throat cancer. Related to that, anyone know roughly what it will cost to get an endoscopic exam of my throat / larynx?
