    Hi Carolyn My dear friend you are as always in my thoughts and prayers.  One of my favorite sayings attributed to Mother Teresa comes to mind, "I know God doesn't give us more than we can handle.... but there are times I wish He wouldn't trust me so much."  We can feel overwhelmed but God alone knows just how much we can handle.  I am praying for a wonderful Thanksgiving for you and your fam...

        Do you have an appointment with an ENT?  If so and this doctor does not find anything wrong I would suggest a GI specialist.  All of your nerve endings are located in the brain so even fear or tension can create pain there - even in the throat.  Our bodies are so complicated and so precise that while something can be wrong in a one certain area of our body primary care doctors may not&nb...

          Sweetie - There is very little chance you have lung cancer.  I also tried it when I was not much older than you but thanks to two parents who were strongly against smoking and an 8th grade teacher, I only experimented and never took up the habit.    I strongly encourage you to stop before you really get started because it is a highly addictive and expensive habit.  My hu...

            Linda - I know all too well how scary it can be when you know something is just not right and having problems for five years must be frustrating.  Pain is generally not associated with tonsil or esophageal cancer - in fact there is generally a lack of symtoms that would lead the average person to suspect cancer.  Tonsil cancer is a highly curable cancer but unlike other types of cancer that ...

              I had a slight problem with acid reflux post treatment due to meds and to difficulty eating but I never had a problem with it before my diagnosis of tonsil cancer.  Since Linda has not been diagnosed with cancer, I took her asking if it could be a symtom of tonsil cancer.  Acid reflux even if not associated with cancer can present health issue...

                A good medication that until recently was available only with a prescription for acid reflux is Nexium.  It is now available over the counter.

                    Tonsil cancer generally did not cause pain by almost all who respond on CC.  What you are desribing would be seen by a bulging tonsil - rather than associatd with cancer.  Diana

                      The intial opening for my feeding tube healed very quickly.  When it was removed it was even quicker healing (it is just pulled out - quickly so one instant pain then over with.  The port presented a little more of a problem because I developed an infection in the area.  It was still worth it to avoid being stuck for blood tests continually.  Instead of being stuck with a needle it went into ...

                      About Dlynn1210

                      Patient
                      Head and Neck Cancer, Tonsils Cancer

                      I am married and the mother of five grown children and 14 grandchildren. I was diagnosed in 2007 with SCC of the left tonsil and have been a member of CC since shortly after beginning treatment. I underwent chemo and radiation at CTCA in Zion, IL and received my last clean scan in Sept 2012. I found a wonderful support system on CC who really understood what I was going through and come back often to offer words of encouragement to those who are now traveling where I have been. I thank God daily for guiding me to CTCA and for guiding me to Cancer Compass. I had a tremendous support system with family and friends but there are not enough words to describe how I feel about my CC family other than to say I would not have made it through as well as I did without you.
