Throat Cancer?!?!
« on: March 24, 2014, 12:00:45 AM »
I'm freaking out!!! When I first got a sore throat I went to the dr he said I had an infection gave me amoxicillin which after ten days did nothing so I called and got prescribed another antibiotic. I have had swollen glands and a lump feeling in my throat for a month now. I'm dreaming I smoked for like 11 years and quit when I got pregnant with my daughter once she was born after about a year I started smoking electric cigarettes with no issues. But since this ore throat hasn't gone away and the husband says my voice sounds raspy and I have no other symptoms I can't help but think the worst. I need reassurance or just someone who has gone through this.

If in doubt you can always ask your doctor to send you for a test. That way you will find out for certain. Sore throat should have cleared up within a month. Might be gland related. Lump in the throat is a typical anxiety symptom as well. But I would ask for a test. That way you get an answer. If anything is there they can do what has to be done to help you out. If nothing bad is found it will at least put your mind at ease.
