Pain on swallowing, neck pain, curved uvula. Quit smoking, tobacco. Symptoms cause of concern?

Hi I have been experiencing some pain swallowing and have noticed that my uvula is curved to the right and when I swallow food seems to go down the right side. I also have some pain in the right side of my neck in this area. I am 21 and chewed tobacco for 3 years previous but have quit about 4 months ago, along with smoking . Should I be concerned?

A curved uvula can be an incidental finding. Pain along with that and difficulty while swallowing needs to be examined. You being smoker should also be another reason for consulting a doctor. Leaving tobacco use is always good but harmful effects of tobacco take many years to go from oral cavity after one quits it. Mean while you can do gargles with hexidine and thing should be fine. regards
