See an ENT doctor: Prolonged unilateral throat swelling demands an evaluation. There are many things that can cause this, but cancer is one of the possibilities and early detection and treatment is essential. See an otolaryngologist very soon for an exam.

Maybe. : Please see your primary care provider so it can be evaluated. You may need to see an Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist.
