Unhappy painful throat

My throat has been hurting when I swallow and now I am coughing alot. I read that throat cancer has these symptoms. I also read that people have lumps on their neck/throat. I donít know where to look for those lumps. Do I look for it inside my mouth or outside on my neck? Please let me know... Thanks.

I found my lump on the outside of my mouth under my jaw (like when you have a sore throat your glands get swollen). You should go see a doctor if you think that you have found a lump, or are having throat problems.

I have been to an ENT six times now. Had a ct of my neck last october, three scopes (through my nose to my vocal cords), neck xray, neck ultrasound, but nothing since this past January. I have had a sore throat since June of 2002. The ent says it's nothing and if it were cancer he would have seen it easily. I'm afraid i have tonsil or throat cancer. My jaw hurts sometimes on the right side, the right side of my neck and my throat.

Would the ent have seen this.

Thanks for the input.
