    clearing throat and hoarseness

    Have been doing this for a while - I went to ENT Friday - was worried because 3 of my friends were diagnosed with throat cancer....she looked down with a light - and she said she didn't see anything other than some mucus...on vocal cords - gave me a sheet with several options to try.....I am getting very irritated with this throat clearing and hoarseness - do I'm not sure what way to go - nasal spray, and Zrytec or Mucinex - I wake up ok and then it starts!

    Hey there, I don't have an answer for your question, but I am curious about your ENT visit. I'm sorta in the same boat as you. I am terrified about throat cancer and I've been dealing with a hoarse voice for over 2 weeks now. I'm curious how the ENT examines the vocal cord. You just kept your mouth open while she shined a light down? I keep reading about them running a camera up through your nose and down the throat which sounds awful to me. I see the ENT on Friday and hope they can get a good look at my vocal cords.

    well I was worried also about that - I had of course googled it so I knew that's what she would want to do....she sprayed some numbing stuff into each nostril and then about 3 or 4 minutes later - brought a machine in and ran a tube down my left nostril into my throat at my vocal cords - told me to say A and E....It didn't last long at all and really wasn't that bad....I stayed numb for a couple of hours I guess. Wish you well....
