Small trial suggests the scans might help, but experts aren't so sure

I have woken up with blood in my throat for two and half weeks. I spit it out a few times and then my throat is clear for the rest of the day. I had a CT scan of my chest and neck which showed a few non-specific reactive nodes along the jugular chain (small 8mm). Nothing else showed. I also had a regular chest Xray...nothing. I also had a CT scan of my head and nothing showed in the sinus. An ENT put a small scope down my throat to my vocal chords (not an endoscopy) and saw nothing.
Does tonsil, any other oral or esophageal cancers show on a CT scan? I do not have a bloody nose...even blowing my nose is clear. There is no blood throughout the day, only in the morning when I wake up.
