I had recently spent a LOT of time with a flashlight looking down my throat from July to December (had a mucus retention cyst that I diagnosed from the internet - I am TOO afraid to go to a doctor!) Anyway, I would check it multiple times a day to make sure it wasn't getting any bigger or getting infected. It did drain by itself and my 2 sides are not the same, never were, I never thought anything of it. I can't DESCRIBE the differences, but both sides (the tonsils and AROUND the tonsils aren't mirror images) Especially If you have a sore throat ONE side will look worse than the other and even healthy will look different. (I can see the bottom of my right tonsil, but the left one blends in to the bottom, it looks like there is extra skin on one side and not on the other, the right tonsil has a crater in it, left one doesn't - see what I mean? (I have VERY tiny tonsils and you can't see them at all unless they were inflamed, and when I DO have a sore throat I can see the right one, not the left one.) And you noticed all this 2 years ago?? You wouldn't even be around to POST if that was cancer!
Wow, it is so amazing how we are all alike here - looking for things where nothing exists. I can say that to you because I'm the SAME way and I can SEE it so clearly in others! LOL! Cancer is cells that grow uncontrolled - so in ANY kind of cancer it would progress, sometimes in a few weeks, sometimes in a few months - but in 2 YEARS? You would either have a tumor the size of a bowling ball in your neck or you'd be dead. So relax. (easy for ME to say "relax" when I myself was freaking out for 5 months over a common mucus retention cyst, right??)
I hear ya, so do I. Sometimes I do really well, then I spiral down into a hole with a black fog all around me and I can't get out - that's when all the irrational fears take hold. I KNOW they are irrational as I am experiencing them but the black fog keeps giving me negative thoughts.
