Possibly: Symptoms of throat cancer do include a sore throat that doesn't go away as well as occasional bleeding. Although throat cancer is not common in a young person who has never smoked, it is becoming more frequent due to human papilloma virus (HPV). There are other conditions that can cause similar symptoms, but any sore throat that persists for months should certainly be evaluated by an ENT doctor. ...Read more

Hole in back of gum and sore throat?

Sore throat: A hole in the gum is suggestive of a primary problem with the teeth. I could represent a cavity of the tooth with erosion of bone and early abscess formation. It could be from a tooth socket that is communicating with the sinuses. Either way, you really need to see a dentist and possibly and ENT if there is involvement of the upper or lower jaw bone and possibly sinuses if in the upper jaw. ...Read more

I have a tightness in the back of my throat and chest  and pain when swallowing?

Looks like a problem: A primary care doctor, and ENT specialist, and a G.I. Specialist can help figure out what is causing swallowing problems. Possible causes include nerve problems, tumors (including cancers), infections, damage from acid reflux, esophagus malfunctions or spasms, eosinophilic esophagitis, etc... Normal swallowing is an automatic, smooth, painless event; so anything other than that should be examined. ...Read more

Dr. can check throat: 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). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help decrease throat pain. ...Read more
