For the past 2 months or so I have had a constantly sore throat and sometimes slight ear ache. I went to see a doctor, he gave me a 2 second examination and told me to gargle with aspirin. So I felt like a bit of an idiot, but the problem persisted.
I’m 23 and have been a smoker on and off since I was 18ish, I’ve tried to quit a dozen times, but I always seem to end up back on them.
The sore throat isn’t that painful, but I know it’s there - I don’t think I’m horse when I’m speaking or have any trouble swallowing though.
The main problem is, just a couple of hours ago I’ve noticed a small lump on the side of my neck, it’s only about half a centimetre wide and I could well have caused it with shaving or something, but needless to say I think I’m dying now.
I’ve just looked up larynx cancer online and convinced myself I have half the symptoms :eek:
Is this very likely, or am I being a hypochondriac? I have been known to do this before (this time last year I got a series of headaches, most likely caused by the hot summer, and convinced myself I had a brain tumour).
