Is burning in throat after sore throat sign of throat cancer?
I have had burning sensation in the throat ( in the upper pharunx area) for 10 days. It started with a sore throat and I was given Amoxicillin. The pain went away but the burning is there and is more severe even after 10 days of Antbiotics. Burning radiates to the left ear with occasional pain( not continious). I have GERD and TMJ. Can this be a symptom of throat cancer?
Hi, dear I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. Burning sensation in throat with pain for 10 days arenot due to throat cancer most llikely. It is due to some upper respiratory tract infection. You should take a course of antibiotics like azithromycin and anti histaminics like chlorpheneremine. Consult your doctor and take treatment accordingly. Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
