Sore Throat Often Accompanied By Painful Swallowing And Shortness Of Breath?
Hello. I want to ask that lately my throat often hurts when I swallow and my breath is a bit tight and also my heart often hurts. Is it a symptom of throat cancer? Thanks
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. While it's true that painful swallowing and shortness of breath can be symptoms of throat cancer, there are many other medical conditions that can cause similar symptoms, and throat cancer has other, more obvious symptoms. Such as vomiting blood, appearing lumps that quickly enlarge and hard, drastic weight loss for no apparent reason, prolonged coughing, and so on.
So in your case, you should consult a doctor, because in addition to throat cancer, strep throat, respiratory infections, acid reflux or ulcer disease can also cause the same symptoms.
Meanwhile, you can take lozenges, drink warm water, avoid spicy, oily, fatty, sour and coconut milk foods. Also avoid eating too much in one meal. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
