Sore Throat With Lump
I have a sore throat and lump on one side near to my throat in the middle of my neck and I am finding it hard to swallow... Any ideas?
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. For someone who dipped for a total of 2 months their entire lifetime, the risk is higher than never but arguably less than someone dipping for years. ...Read more

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?
Not throat cancer: Cancer won't announce itself like this, especially at your age. It's a relatively slow-growing ulcer or mass that is cruelly subtle in its initial presentation. Being a singer, you're already protecting yourself from most forms of throat cancer by not smoking. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
