Hi Yasmin, the symptoms that you have mentioned are the symptoms of a respiratory tract infection and not cancer. So please do not worry. Consult a good ENT surgeon and you will be fine after completing the antibiotic course. Take care!

Hey Yasmin, these things do happen in infection. Even I have a sore throat now and it is too much for you to think in terms of cancer and related things. So you should not worry. Get the antibiotics and should be fine I guess.
