Terrified I have throat cancer

I'm a 34 male who takes regular exercise, is asthmatic, smokes 10 a day and drinks regularly.
I'm terrified I have throat cancer.

I've felt like I had something in my throat for months, but have tried to forget about it. Then breathing became difficult for a couple of weeks and the realisation that I may have throat cancer hit me.

I've been having regular nose bleeds, but have not been coughing up blood or coughing much more than I should.

I went to the doctors, he said my lungs were fine and prescribed me antibiotics for my throat.

Nothing seems to be happening, is there a chance I have throat cancer? - this has made me quit smoking for good.

Does this sound like throat cancer, and with my age and lifestyle how probable could it be?

Thanks

Re: Terrified I have throat cancer

Hi,
stop smoking forever and watch how much you drink.
Someone close to me died of throat cancer and believe me it is not worth it.
I doubt you have got it, it usually happens after years and years of smoking,drinking and eating a substandard diet. If you really want to be checked out then a CT scan is the only real way I think, so talk to your doctor. Good luck.
