Customer Question
windpipe. My throat hurts off...
There is an occasional sharp pain on one side of my windpipe. My throat hurts off and on. I'm tired. No cough or drainage. Lymph nodes under my jaw are slightly swollen it feels like. It feels like I have a lump in my throat or food is stuck there but I have been suffering from the lump feeling for years. The muscle in my neck hurt as well. No fever. Very low in Iron as well as vitamin D. Thyroid tests have always been normal. I'm scared that this is throat cancer or esophageal cancer. Had the stomach flu 3 weeks ago, and threw up for 2 days straight. My throat started after that, as well as the pains in my windpipe. I medicate for acid reflux, but it seems to be under control and has been for quite awhile now. Mainly concerned about cancer in my throat or windpipe. I have never smoked or drank.

Hello!
At age 29 and non smoker you would be unlikely to have cancer.
With your symptoms your doctor may obtain neck and chest CT.
That test would thoroughly check your structures of neck and chest and any such abnormality such as enlarged lymph nodes may be picked up.
I hope that this information is helpful.Let me know if you have further questions.I will be happy to get back with you. If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback.Thank You and Best Regards,
Anthony Bray MD

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
