Usually, one sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep). A couple days of throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease pain. ...Read more

I have 3 dark purple spots that look like blood blisters on my lingual tonsils, should I worry this is cancer? Have had a sore throat for 3 weeks.

I have 3 dark purple spots that look like blood blisters on my lingual tonsils, should I worry this is cancer? Have had a sore throat for 3 weeks.

No: The tonsils are subject to a great deal of inflammation under certaincirdcumstances. Where there are the occassional cases of malignancy developing it is either from squamous malignancy or lymphoma. Neither present as hemmorhagic areas. The latter can occur when there is some bleeding into the tonsil because of proximity to the underlying intermal caroltid artery. Warm gargles should help. ...Read more

Tomorrow am having Radiofrequency vein ablation of the Great saphenous. But I now have sore throat cough runny nose. Is it safe to go ahead with it?

No procedure: Most practitioners would postpone the surgery. Airway management is crucial in all surgeries and with a sore throat cough and runny nose it is NOT safe to go ahead with the procedure. This is an elective procedure and not an emergency. In an elective procedure the risks of airway compromise are great. It is not worth the risks associated with a cold and airway management ...Read more

The sore throat and cough occurring now are likely the beginning of flu symptoms. There is an antiviral agent which can shorten the course of the disease but must be taken within the 1st 48 hrs to be effective. ...Read more
