throat cancer scare
« on: June 15, 2014, 11:53:40 AM »
So I smoke...more then usual lately as im under an enormous amount of stress. I'm soooo scared of throat cancer because I'm experiencing a sore throat (not severs but definitely not dull). Its on one certain spot of my throat and its traveling up my ear. I read on the mayo clinic website that those are two of the symptoms! My sore throat also has been off and on the last few days but today is the worst! Someone please help! Also I randomly had diarrhea today (tmi sorry) and I NEVER have that.

someone please say they've had similar or the same symptoms that were nothing?  :traurig001:

How old are you?  Assuming you're under 50 that's pretty unlikely.  Yes, smoking can lead to throat cancer, but after decades. 

And you probably have diarrhea because you're so worried about throat cancer.

I'm only 33, but have been smoking for a while, ive been trying to quit for like 2 weeks no. My throat still hurts now and is radiating into my left ear. I'm so scared I have it .. and will die and not be around for my 3 year old.

Anyone? Its just one spot on my throat. (my whole throat is a bit irritated but normal allergy stuff). I can tell this isn't allergies...feels like a "muscle ache" in that one spot. And it radiates to my ear. I know this can be symptoms of throat cancer....i can't get in with my Dr until beginning of July and I feel stupid going to the ER....they practically know me by face there!
