Dear All,
Currently i am having small obstruction sort of thing in my neck on the right side. I can feel it is inside.
It feels like some sort of growthin the throat area.
I also have fever of 99.9. I am also a smoker.

I am worried it should not be cancer or some thing serious.
Appreciate your help

  • Schedule an appointment and have it looked at, perhaps, first, phone your primary care provider, see what he/she says ... and if applicable, he/she may give you a referral based on what he/she feels most appropriate for further examination(s) ... maybe with an ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist)? If cancer is a possibility they will, then, refer you to an oncologist (cancer specialist). Your primary may want to examine you first, it could be something simple, something that is not serious at all, and a throat culture or something may be more feasible to start, I don't know. Best advise I have, start by calling PCP (Primary Care Provider) ... this is your regular doctor that treats you overall (physical exams, colds, flus ... whatever arises).
