I've dipped lightly for 2 months now but stopped. I've got a clicking noise when I swallow, sore throat and lump feeling. Cancer?

Unlikely, but...: Dipping can cause a number of changes within and around the oral cavity - short-term could cause changes in amount of saliva (more/less), soreness/lymph node enlargement - also possible w/ infections. Over the long term, cancer is always a concern.

Very sore throat, a lump in my right side of my neck, fna of right lymph node says "lymphocytes consistent with reactive lymphoid hyperplasia" ?

Benign report...: Fna of the lymph node is the first step in diagnosing the cause of lymphadenopathy. The quote from the pathology report means the findings of the aspirate are benign. Lymphoid hyperplasia means there is external stimulation of the lymph node by infection or possibly an autoimmune process. Please follow up closely with your doctor.

16, never smoked/drank alcohol. Lately i had sore throat, a lump in throat, ear itchiness, hoarse voice. I am a classical singer. Is it throat cancer?

Being a singer, you're already protecting yourself from most forms of throat cancer by not smoking. Best wishes. ...Read more
