A member asked:

Can trouble swallowing, body aches, excess mucus in throat , cough. and green phlegm mean throat cancer?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Not likely : These symptoms are more indicative of infection (either viral or bacterial). Cancers can lead to a secondary infection though, and if they don't fully resolve with time or treatment you should consider bringing this possibility up with your provider, especially if you smoke.
