Early Warning Signs of Throat Cancer
Obstruction in the throat
Constant sensation of something stuck in the throat can be an early sign of throat cancer. If you feel obstruction in the region which makes it difficult for you to swallow, contact your doctor immediately.
Lump on the neck
Often tumors start from the throat and metastasize to the neck region. Hence, lumps can be felt near the jaw and the neck. If you notice a lump in the neck or near the jaw, it could be a sign of throat cancer.
One usually never connects ear pain to throat cancer. However, apart from ear infections, persistent ear pain is a sign of throat cancer. If you are experiencing ear pain along with throat pain, get yourself tested for throat cancer.
