Have CML, sore throat, unable to swallow, cough, ear pain. Normal?

Hello, I am already a sufferer of CML for two years now, so I m sure you can forgive my jumpiness at the following experience I ve had as to whether or not it is another type of cancer: I had the most incredibly sore throat a few weeks back, barely able to swallow , coughing all the time, ear ache, the lot! This then went to my chest (I assumed this was a throat infection turned chest infection so I was fine with it to just get better) It s been about two weeks now and sometimes I still get a horrible ear ache on one side and what feels like a swollen gland on the same side- once again I figured ear infection was still there. However it switched sides today. Is this normal? The pain in my throat is as if I ve been punched there, so not sore all the time, only when I swallow. I m starting to panic I have throat cancer! I m sure you understand why I m so concered, please help. Alex

ENT Specialist 's  Response
I have gone through your query.
It suggests that you may be suffering from the referred otalgia.
But for better diagnosis and exclusion of the other disease, please consult the ENT specialist.
For your kind information referred otalgia--->
It is an ear pain that originates from outside the ear.
It not always associated with ear disease.
It may be caused by several other conditions, such as impacted teeth, sinus disease, inflamed tonsils, infections in the nose and pharynx, throat cancer.

Wish you good health
