Sore throat freaking out
long story short,
i just turned 47,
about a week and a half ago I noticed a sore spot on my neck after 5 days went to ent. said I had saliva gland infection, clogged I guess,,, anyway
put me on amox,875 for 10 days, He looked in my mouth andfelt my neck. I told him I had been very very worried for the worst..... he said I was worring for nothing and not to worry.
been a week,
now I have a sore throat for about 4 days, I smoke I still feel the saliva thing but not as bad, but the sore throat is really starting to bug me. I google it and of course all i get is throat cancer hits.
Do you think if i had something really wrong he would have seen it?
I need to let this go man.... I go back in 2 weeks for follow up.
I feel like i have a sinus infection with some Post nasel drip, stuffy head.
I guess thats my main question,
Do you think an ENT would know if I had something bad wrong from just a 20 minute office visit?
