Detail: Im 19 years old and i have a short history of smoking tobacco and using chewing tobacco) (less then a year) I have scene atleast 4 doctors in the past few months, and I have scene the same ENT about 3 times this month for different things regaurding the same issue. I hate to type or even say this out loud, but I can't stop thinking I have throat cancer. I have a bunch of mucus i hack up all day, i clear my throat so much my girlfriend is starting to get annoyed, and It feels tight when I swallow, like everthing is grinding together. I swear I feel like I'm going crazy! Last time i scene the ENT i described to him how i get so anxious that I will stick my finger deep down my throat and feel for stuff or look for blood when I pull it out (never found blood). He says it's very unlikely that I would have cancer so young, but I always hear of people getting it young and it scares me so much that it makes me depressed, due to the fact I think of it multiple times a day. PLEASE HELP. FEELING SUICIDAL. although I know that I would never take my own life. Been on prilosec twice a day for about a month, now Im down to taking it once a day. Been trying to eat well, despite being broke, I have to be fortunate and make due with the food we have and can afford.
