I suffer from a month of difficulty in the throat and sometimes I feel that there is something stuck in my throat I Tnfajat in the tonsils and salivar?

A month is long: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). A month is too long to have a sore throat, so a doctor should check. ...Read more

Without : Without an exam, it's difficult to say what exactly is causing your problem. A sore throat or a "lump in the throat" sensation that persists more than a few days could be something such as a chronic infection or gastroesophageal reflux disease. If you have a hoarse voice, it could be a vocal cord nodule or hemorrhage from overuse. Even cancer, especially if you smoke, drink or have been exposed to the hpv virus, can cause a "lump sensation" when you swallow. Because of this, it is important that you see your doctor or an otolaryngologist (ear nose and throat specialist) to find the cause of your throat problem so it can be properly and effectively treated. ...Read more

Lost a patch, syphilis: Syphilis, also known as the great imitator, has not been eradicated and physicians should maintain a high level of diagnostic suspicion.1 In addition to the usual forms of presentation, very rare cutaneous manifestations can appear and sometimes make diagnosis difficult.

?submucous palate: A bifid uvula (double uvula) may be a sign of a small amount of misalignment of muscle in the palate. Although it may be superficially normal (and could be completely normal), there is a possibility that there could be a small area of missing muscle called a submucous cleft palate which may affect speech. This should be evaluated by a specialist to be sure. ...Read more

Many possibilities: We need a lot of history from you. Do you smoke, do you have allergies, what kind of work you do? Lungs and bronchus are constantly generating a fine secretion which is the defense mechanism, but when you get inflammation in the airways, by any pathology, your secretions get thick, and body rejects them, so coughing is our defense.Try some mucolytic -decongestant combination for a week.See adoctor. ...Read more
