Throat cancer scare

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi I’m a 15 year old male. All I’ve done is a few cigarettes and like a week or two of chewing tobacco. I regret it and would never do it again. I have very bad health anxiety and have worried about oral or throat cancer many times. But this past Friday I found a bump on the side of my neck, it is quite movebale and goes all over when I press it. I find another one on the back of my neck that isn’t so moveable. I have no other symptoms of throat cancer but I do cough after laughing and have a little less breath when laying down. Do you think this is cancer and is it likely in someone of my age? I’m very scared so any help is appreciated.
