I am a 44 year male diagnosed with T1 Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the left Vocal Chord. Non Smoker - occassional wine drinker. Initial ENT thought it was a wart. 99% Certain it was not cancer. Ooops Wrong. They removed it surgically thinking it was a wart. Followed this up 6 weeks later with 28 radiation treatments.
My radiation treatments focused soley on the larynx, in other words my jaw, teeth, face were spared. These completed Dec 2003. It is now Jan 2004. Here are my questions - I would like to know if anyone else has experienced these.
a) I have a post nasal drip sensation a lot of the time
I am curious to see if anyone else runs into these things..cause I don't want my mind racing all the time thinking there is something to be concerned about if there is not.
My last endoscope was 3 weeks ago and everything looked fine. I worry sometimes that the doctors aren't particularly thorough - this paranoia probably came about because of the initial Dr. telling 99% sure it isn't cancer.
Thanks - Michael
