A year ago i had 4 places removed from my vocal chord which dr. said was dysplasia. I now have a sore stiff neck. Is this a sighn of cancer?
Hi--how long has this been going on and where exactly is your neck pain?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

All around my neck but mainly the right side

Are the muscles either tender or stiff? And again--how long has this been going on, Annette?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

They are stiff. Hurts to turn my head. About 2 months but worsened since beginning. Have had some ear pain and light headedness.

OK Aneete--no this isn't cancer, either from your cords or otherwise. Cancer doesn't stiffen muscles and cause ear pain. You could have a disk problem in your neck here so you should at least have your doctor take a look but I assure you cancer doesn't act like this
