Friends,

i really need your suggestions.

I am been having sore throat for 5 months now, and i have been visiting various doctors, from GP to ENT.

I was having slight pain in my lower throat , when i drank water , or ate something.

The ENT did a larygoscopy , but did not find anything which could concern him, Whenever i see my throat using camera flash light , i see a small spot (the skin has become more whitish, inflamed) on the posterior wall of oropharynx, I have even captured the picture on my camera and shown to the 3 various doctors and they all say that it is nothing that concerned them.

I am still concerned , as i have seen that spot developing in front of my eyes, it was not there before, and it look like collection of wbcs, under the skin , as if there are lots of wbcs in that particular area.

My Tongue has recently become 2 furry , and also have small brownish spots (which bleed) when i try to scratch them.

Can these be any types of allergy??

Please help me , i am too scared.

Regards

  • I know you are worried about cancer from how you have written, but get to another ENT and keep pushing through this. Chronic yeast infections and other such infections can really get a hold on the body and you "might" have something like that. ENTs are definitely the person to see, so push really hard and keep getting other opinions. Don't give up -- you just have to find a doctor to help you. Talk to friends and get them to help you find an excellent ENT! God Bless.

  • Friend! Do not fear.First find if u hav sore in the throat or throat pain.I had throat pain for many months. Doctors said nothing.They gav me antacids, gargles.But couldnt help. When I pressd my outer neck direct where the pain was inside , my ear also felt pain. I changed my eating habit. I cooked my own food.Very simple.Boil little rice and add more vegetables and boil somemore.Dont add chille. But can add garlic, onions and ginger if preffered.I ate for a month. Now I am well.Dont eat potato chips,sour cream food, chille,oily, sugary or gassy food and drinks.If u eat outside even if u try to avoid these things still those food got a lot of other unhealthy addings, or flavourings that U cannot avoid. I tried Tymol gargle(can buy at any government clinic pharmacy).It was good for me.Dont sleep with food particles in mouth.Gargle helps I think.Meditate as u want to be healthy.Pray and ask God to discipline you.Once u get well then u will come to know how God helped u thro friends. God says ''Fear not , for I AM with you''.We can overcome any unhealthy thing matters that affects our lives.Hav hope.These things are harmless to try. God bless!

  • Hello all, I've had the same issue all your guys are talking about. My sore throat started out feeling like a small cold. The pain though, stayed for almost three months. The soreness would located on the left side, and hurt intermittently when I would swallow. Some days the pain would be worse. I thought I had a lymph node swollen. The only time the pain was constant would be during yawning--There would be a dull ache running up the lower-left jaw line. I went to three different doctors. I was placed on Zithromycian, Leva-pak, FimVir, and Allegra. The doctor's thought it was either Strep, HSV-1, or Post-Nasal Drip. Nothing seemed to work. I started talking the matter into my own hands by researching the anatomy of the neck, and saliva glands. I found an interesting website devoted to teaching doctors how to examine the head-and-neck. There was a method to feel if the Submaxillary gland was swollen. I tried the exam on myself, and could feel my left submaxillary glad was slightly swollen/hard. I palpated the glad several times in an attempt to discover if there were any tumors, cysts, or other blockage. It has now been 24-hours since I did this. The swelling and pain have almost diminished. I don't really know what worked. But maybe a saliva gland on the left side was block, and by smoothly, and carefully pushing on this glad caused the blockage to break free. Thus allowing the gland to work/flow properly. I have attached a link to the website. The figure I referenced is Figure 119.7 (palpation of the submaxillary glands)http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/bookshelf/br.fcgi?book=cm&part=A3627Please let me know if this work for any of you.
