Laryngopharyngeal reflux(LPR) or Cancer

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi All,

Just to introduce myself, I am 32 years and was a healthy male( Heavy Smoker) but from June 1 week,I felt something wrong, My throat started paining when i am touching from outside, after one week i went to GP and Diagnosed with pharyngitis and told me nothing to fear. but it didn't recover and i make up my mind to go to ENT. I googled a lot and scary things are giving me anxiety. ENT gave me PPI which reduced my sore throat almost completely but I developed hoarseness in voice and started breathing issue. i had my chest X-ray done and PFT test. Xray was good but PFT was bad(Lungs age 102). Now another sysmptom arises Ear clogged and Neck pain.

I did upper endoscopy and found swelling and inflammation with edema, no cancer visibility. Ear pain has increased as well. Every Afternoon my throat becomes scratchy and warmth in throat. I am really frustrated and it is taking a toll in my life. After 3 months I have very mild sore throat, mild neck pain, both ear clogged and sometimes ear pain.life style change has a very less impact in my symptom.

sometimes i have fever kind symptoms and night sweating.

Can anyone help me

    If they couldn't see cancer that is good news.

    I had LPR (so hoarse I lost my voice), but that was diagnosed by an ENT sticking a camera down my throat. No CT scans at all. Have your vocal cords and throat been examined with a camera? If not, I suggest you do.
