Hello
Welcome to health care magic
post sex throats infection can occur only if you indulge in unprotected oral sex/deep wet kissing.Even kissing unhygienic area of body.It is not a sign of cancer.get a course of antibiotic after consultation with ENT surgeon along with saline gargles.
Wish you speedy recovery

Hi, i wanted to ask a question or shall i say a concern that i have. I am 28 years of age, female and for the past few years i have experienced many throat infections as the gp would call it. Last month i was again diagnosed with throat infection and have been given antibiotics to take. I took them for a week and didnt feel much better. Went back to see gp again who advised unless i have breathing problems i should be fine and sent me home. I have a felling as something is in my throat. When i move my head from side to side i can feel as something is moving there. It also cause pain, sharp pain from my throat into my chest and kind of burning sensation also in chest as well as my jow. I am really scared of throat cancer . Can you please tell me the symptoms i am having are they anything to do with throat cancer????? Just to add this year in January when i coughed i have noticed little bit of blood in my cough, that only happened once in the morning, than in June the same thing happened once in the morning. Please help if you can. I have two children and i am very scared.

Hi, I am 5 6, weighs 155, 34 yrs. of age, just had a baby 2months ago and breastfeeding right now. As far as I know I am a healthy person, the only thing is, I am always getting throat infection, yearly infact. I was tested by it last few weeks ago but it was negative but my throat is sore right now, my right cheek is a bit swollen, my lower back tooth on my right is hurting and my ear is plugged. Could this be a throat cancer? Told my doctor that I want to see an ENT but she won t refer me.

I ve had a terrible cough, sore throat and pain in my eardrums for a week now. Been the doctor n he told me it a bad viral infection . he told me to gargle on salt water and take ibuprofen but I seem to be getting worse. I already take co codomol for other problems but I m taking more now because of this. I m panicking in case I ve got throat cancer because I have been drinking regular since October.

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?

Hi! I am a 30 y.o. gay male, no medical history. Over the last 2 years, I have been having pretty bad sore throat episodes, throat infections, tonsilitis etc. I also had a lymph node that wouldnt go away... I have been fine for months and now again I have a bad sore throat with fever etc. But now I know I think I know the reason but I am too shy to talk to a doctor about it. I enjoy giving deep oral sex (deepthroating), and I realized that everytime I had a sore throat (that lasted for days), I had had that kind of oral sex a few days before... Can you confirm please? And what do I need to do? I am a little worried... Thanks.
