Unclear question: It appears that you do not have cancer in the throat. Depending on the type of cancer, there may or may not be any changes in the CBC panel.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

You're good : Globus pharyngeus is scary but harmless. Cancer this advanced is not subtle. If you have had a competent exam, give thanks for good health and be done.
