Had my 8 month checkup with ENT Friday and he used a new 3 chip scope to look in my throat. Old cancer site looked good but he spotted a couple of little whitish spots on my vocal cords. Called it Leukoplakia and said it was the result of heavy smoking or GERD/ acid reflux. I've never been a smoker and although I have had heartburn once in awhile not cosistantly. This new scope took a movie of the whole procedure including sound of me saying different letters. Still photos were made from the movie and added to the report. The ENT is going to keep an eye on things and prescribed an anti-reflux med to take. He assured me he it wasn't anything real bad but is obviously going to keep on top of this. Anybody else with similar? Thanks in advance.
