I am a healthy 37 year old who has recently been having the sensation of something being stuck in my throat. I have has tonsil stones, but this feels different. It is lower down in the throat where I can't see. I also have the sensation of being hungry and can never get full. Have had these symptoms for about 10 days now. I am terrified this is cancer! What do you think?
