he should see a doctor right away or go to the ER and get a chest CT scan to check for pressure on his recurrent laryngeal nerve causing hoarseness of his voice and to check for pressure on his superior vena cava causing collateral venous circulation in his chest.

this is a rare condition which can cause this

but he should see a doctor right away and get a chest CT scan to check for this

does he have health insurance to be able to see a doctor to get a chest CT scan?

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.
