Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

Don't worry about unnecessary future happenings. You are not a trained doctor. Leave the dignosis to a doctor.

The symptoms you mentioned simply might be common cold and sore throat or most likely inflamed tonsils. Thats all.

But to be sure, you need to consult a general physician. Don't assume that you have some dreaded disease. STOP SMOKING for your good.

Get well soon.
