Likely not: The most common presenting symptoms of throat cancer are a painless neck mass (from cancer spreading to a lymph node), ear pain, and difficult or painful swallowing. While throat cancer can occasionally occur in patients as young as 34, it tends to be linked to the HPV virus in that group. That being said, the HPV virus is carried by much of the population and smoking is also a major risk too.

Highly unlikely: Highly unlikely, but I would have your doctor check it out.
