Unhappy inflammed throat

for the past 2 months i have had a really wierd throat issue. on teh right side of my throat i feel a bump when i swallow. i check my neck periodically and it seems as two vieny lumps are on the sides of my throat. im assuming that they are my vocal chords.

at any rate, i got a CT scan of my neck and head, & my Dr. said that i checked out ok.

anyways, for the past week or so, i have had a fullness in my ear and difficulty swallowing. now the left side of my neck has been bothering me, and i have a hard time hearing out of my left ear.

i read up on this, and i find that its probably cancer. so im freaking out.
can a thyroid scan detect throat cancer? all my blood tests, EKG tests, Liver tests, CT Scans, chest X Rays turned out ok.

i am a smoker, and im trying to quit.......this is really scary. any advice?

Re: inflammed throat

What did your dr. say about this? Have you discussed your fears about cancer with him? Wouldn't the CT scan of your neck have shown any cancer? Why not call your dr. Fears about health can be plain torture, and he'll probably be able to put your mind at rest in no time.
