iv had a sore throat that keeps coming back it hurts when i swollow and have a pain in my ear my father had throat cancer im worried
Wendy no forum is going to give you the peace of mind you need. Head off to your local G.P. and have him check out your throat. Don't start thinking the worst, get some clarification first. You probably have a infection... It is really good you are mindful of your genetic's and the sad situation that has occurred in your family. Now use that information, pick up the phone and make that appointment, give yourself peace of mind and have it checked out.. The longer you leave things the bigger they become in you mind.. Come on Wendy, bet you it's a infection and thats all it is?? Let me know..Xx
had sore throat last night now feels if somthink stuck in throat can u help
I went to my doctor, as I have small orifices in the back of my throat which are trapping food. I asked him if I could have refferal to an ENT specialist. My throat is very sore, and my uncle died of throat cancer. He has now advised me that there is nothing that can be done under the NHS, and that I would have to go private. His other words were, " I would have to live with it". I am only a pensioner, and cannot afford to go private. I feel very surprised that I cannot even get this checked by a specialist. Any advice ?

Hi my name is sangram and I am from India.India . I use to drink twice a week (180 ml of whisky). And sometimes I used to drink it neat. But from past 5 months I have quit drinking. But since then m into a great depression about thinking myself affected with throat cancer. I don't have any problem like trouble in swallowing neither I have a sore throat. But sometimes I feel something strange with my throat. So I am very much worried about my current situation. Please suggest me what should I do in this situation
I have the same complication as u do. Dont know if i should get it checked or not
Don't know if you will see this but it honestly sounds like anxiety or panic attacks. You said you're worrying about throat cancer, which you needn't be. Anxiety can cause a lot of symptoms and one of the most common is issues with your throat, whether feeling a lump, tightness, or heavy swallowing. Also, depression and anxiety go hand in hand.

Hi, I have got Acid Reflux where I am constantly beltching it feels like there is something stuck in my throat. I have had this problem for a number of years now, so I recently went to my doctors and was prescribed with numerous tablets, but to no avail they havnt worked. I was sent to a specialist and he is referring me to a Hospital In Salford where the I am having an operation where they Tie a Tube In my stomach to stop the acid coming back up my throat. Apparently this lasts for 10 Years I think, and also I might have to continue taking tablets for the rest of my life.
