Hi, I kept feeling like something was in my throat. hard to swollow ect. Got a flash light and sure enough there is. thought this was my tonsil which was removed when I was 5 . Found out it's called uvula (little strip of flesh hangs in the back of your throat). anyway there's a growth about the size of a pencil eraser and is on the bottom right side.
I haven't been feeling real good lately dizzy spells, sick to my stomach,hot cold and can't breath at times. This all started recently along with the swollowing problem. I'm 29 and female and I do smoke a pack a day.
I worry about cancer my father died from a very rare form and so did his mother. Although my father was a vietnam vet and was sprayed with agent orange so not sure if it was really hereditory or not. sorry to much information. lol well I look forward to your thoughts because I have no health insurance ! My uncle is a doctor and I'm going to go see him but this is worrysome! Never realized how common throat cancer is in smoker's 90% of cancer of the oropharynx is from smoking! making me really consider quitting! you don't hear about this stuff in the news. guess it's not to good to tell your customer's the risks. O well, :help: thanks Bonnie
