Nasal cancer at your: Age is low probability. You may have post nasal drip with inflammed tonsils(or not). Nasal steroids, generic flonase, at night peridot to bed will turn your post nasal drip into an antiinflammatory gruel. That would be my suggestion? Hard to pick up picture but pharyngeal cancer at age 31 is reare while post nasal drip very common. Good luck, man, but try the flonase.

Doubt just infection: Bleeding for 6 month is worrisome. Blood count with hg (red cell), white cell and platelet count....Hpv virus is implicated in many cancers including mouth and throat. See your gp and/or ear nose and throat dr. Early diagnosis makes a lot of difference. Do not delay. Thanks.
