I DONT KNOW WHAT A THROAT ULCER IS BUT I KNOW THAT MY MOM WAS DIAGNOSED WITH THROAT CANER ON FEB 1ST OF 2002 AND SHE TOO HAD 39 RADIATION TREATMENTS TO HER THROAT AND TWO DIFFERENT KINDS OF CHEMO AND SHE FOUGHT A COURAGEOUS HARD LONG BATTLE AND SHE JUST RECENTLY PASSED AWAY ON APRIL THE 10TH AND I WOULD GET ANOTHER OPINION TO MAKE SURE THE ULCER IS NOT CANCER BECAUSE THE DOCTORS MY MOM WAS GOING TO FOR A WHOLE YEAR IN 2001 WAS TREATING HER FOR THE FLU AND THE WHOLE TIME SHE HAD THROAT CANCER AND WHEN SHE FINALLY GOT TO A GOOD ENT DOCTOR HE TOLD HER IT WAS A MALIGNT TUMOR AND IT WAS IN HE 3RD STAGE SO AFTER ALL THE TREATMENT SHE MADE IT FOR ANOTHER 14 MONTHS. I THINK IT WAS LET GO SO LONG THAT IT MADE IT SPREAD CAUSE IT SPREAD TO HER RIGHT RIB THEN THEY FOUND A SPOT ON HER KIDNEY AND BRAIN AND THE LAST WEEK SHE WAS ALIVE THE ONCOLIGIST SAID IT WAS PROBABLY IN THE LIVER TOO. SHE WAS A WONDERFUL WOMAN AND I MISS HER SO BAD. GOOD LUCK AND I PRAY THAT THINGS WORK OUT FOR YOU AND YOUR FRIEND.
