Doctor can check: 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.

I have head to toe night sweats...Day sweats...A rubbery neck lump...Cough with lump sensation while swallowing.  Should i be worried-?
