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.

My 5 year old son had strep pharyngitis 2 weeks ago and was treated with keflex x 10days. Midway through the keflex course he c/o lower bilateral abdominal pain although he would first point to the right lower quadrant. Yesterday he developed a fever, headache, sore throat, and abdominal pain. No N&V, no diarrhea, no one else is sick in the house. He was seen by his PCP who did a throat culture, UA and culture. His UA showed +4 ketones, trace blood, +1 protein, negative glucose, and specific gravity of 1.010. We were given a second course of Keflex and sent to the ED where they did another UA, CBC, and CMP. Glucose 116. UA still had +4 ketones but no other abnormalities. Today he is febrile 101 to 102 F, with abdominal pain which is lower bilateral but a little more on the right side. The ED said that he could have an appendicitis brewing and to keep an eye on him. The also said that his urine did not look dehydrated and his electrolytes looked normal so they are not sure why his ketones are so high. Any thoughts?
