Is advanced throat cancer contagious? Need some advice?

Whether a patient suffering from throat cancer at advaced stage (got radiotherapy without much success in treatment) can transmit infection to another healthy person by trying to speak very close to ear? If some pain is felt by the healthy person in ear after the throat cancer patient (whose voice is almost lost) has tried to speak close to the ear of a healthy person, what can be interpreted? What advice can be given to the healthy person?

Hi, no it is not contagious whatever may be stage. The pain the other person is feeling is either psychological or unrelated to the cancer. Do consult an ENT if pain in ear does not go but in any case can not be attributed to cancer. Regards
