Slight pain in left side of the throat. Do not have cough - Online Doctor Chats
Hi doctor. My name is XXXXXXX
I have a slight pain in my left side of the throat.
Since how long
do you have difficulty swallowing
No. I am able to swallow properly. But, when I swallow, I am able to spot out the pain exactly
This has been a recurrent problem from the past 1 year or so. I met ENT specialists 3 months back and took sputum culture test, throat swab. But all the reports are normal.
I don't have cough.
No cold as well
Today, I could see a tiny spot of fresh blood when I spit.
I am scared.
plz help me
The fresh blood is because of break in the capillary
and this is common after allergy
You should avoid all the allergen
It is scary, if it could be something else.
everytime, I used to get pain only on the left side of my throat
If you are smoker then entire possibility change
You need to get Chest Xray, dental examination as well
I did dental examination a week back. Everything seems to be normal. only one tooth i need to do RCT. thatz it
That does not have chest pain
the simple blood like you said could be in the allergic bronchitis like condition
But, why I have always getting pain on the one side of my throat?
Is there any other test that I need to undergo?
No need the diagnosis is confirmed allergic bronchitis aggravated on smoking
smoking is cause more damage
Chest Xray is better
Ok doctor. So, what I need to do now?
Quit Quit and Quit smoking
that is the allergn
Sure. I will stop smoking from now
and avoid allergens
Ok doctor. I am scared, that it could be cancerous or pre-cancerous symptom. How can I confirm that, there is nothing harmful?
As long as you smoke the risk is very high
For now since the doctor confirmed benignity
you should try to work on quitting
All the best
