    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

    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.
