Is it can be cancer?


I'm 22 years old female . 3 years ago I quit smoking and I'm not using alcohol.
More than month ago , I had a chest pains. I went to chest x ray and the results was fine. After that I started to notice , neck swelling and pains in right side . After that I decide to take a look at my throat and I saw few orange patches , I went again to GP who just told me to use some throat spray and came back if these patches will not disappeared . And I had a head pains in the same swelling side for one day.
After one month , swelling is gone and pains also butt those patches are growing bigger and more , especially one. They are painless and also I notice some blood vessels new under them. I have done my blood tests too times and they were fine . I'm scared . Maybe someone knows what it can be .
I add the pictures in my album .

At such a young age I highly doubt it is throat cancer. I treat cancer patients and have never treated someone so young for throat cancer. I would suggest you go back to your doctor, like they suggested, since the patches are still there and even worse. Maybe you have some kind of throat infection that still has not been diagnosed. You need a swab culture taken from your throat, possibly. Maybe it's an infection caused from smoking. I'm so proud of you for quitting smoking! Smoking is so horrible for your health. You know, I see so many patients with cancer who come in for treatments smelling of smoke! They still can't give up that dirty habit even when they have cancer. It's so sad. Don't rely on medicine to cure you of smoking-related diseases, start with a healthy life-style, and not smoking or drinking are the most important ones to start with!

Re: Is it can be cancer?

Thank you , for your time to answer me. Is it can be really some infection witch is not going away for too months? Now I have neck pains one side , very light and I soul lot of new blood vessels in the throat , some of them are coming out from this patches and lump . Is it normal to develop new blood vessels or it always is a sign that something is going wrong .
Witch doctor shud I go first , to the specialist of the throat or I have to do some tests with my GP before that? I don't want to go to GP because it always takes a month to get something from them
