| | inflammed throat
for the past 2 months i have had a really wierd throat issue. on teh right side of my throat i feel a bump when i swallow. i check my neck periodically and it seems as two vieny lumps are on the sides of my throat. im assuming that they are my vocal chords.
at any rate, i got a CT scan of my neck and head, & my Dr. said that i checked out ok.
anyways, for the past week or so, i have had a fullness in my ear and difficulty swallowing. now the left side of my neck has been bothering me, and i have a hard time hearing out of my left ear.
i read up on this, and i find that its probably cancer. so im freaking out.
can a thyroid scan detect throat cancer? all my blood tests, EKG tests, Liver tests, CT Scans, chest X Rays turned out ok.
i am a smoker, and im trying to quit.......this is really scary. any advice?
