Hi, I was diagnosed with Pappilary Cancer in may- I have had the surgery, and 1 dose of Radiation so far. I will get a scan in the beginning of 2001, to see if it is all gone. I am 28. I am concerned it may still be there, I have ear pressure, and odd looking things in my throat also sysptoms that made me go to the dr. In the first place (such as tiredness-clearing my throat because of horsness)- Dr.s belive the tumor had been there for several years (because of the size) It was also attached to my vocal chords and 7 lymph nodes were removed.
It's very frustrating. When I first told Dr's of my syptoms they said oh it's stress, you have 3 kids that is why you are tired etc. etc. I had many thyroid blood test done in the past but my thyroid was functioning fine so they never picked up on it. My OB actually found the lump in my throat. I was angry because I know my body - it was telling me something and noone would listen.
I had my radiation in July and I am waiting to go for a check up on Dec. 2, As I mentioned earlier I am having ear pain again, and horsness and have to clear my throat often BUT I also have these red circle marks on the roof of my mouth, and blister like bubbles in the back of my throat ( I had them checked to make sure they are not strep)
My throat does not hurt, I thought maybe it was syptoms from the radiation.
Does anyone have the same problem?
Thanks for any responses
