I have had a terrible time with asthma and coughing. I also feel light headed a lot. My Oncologist several times last year asked about the white spots in the back of my throat and told me to ask my dentist about them. I did but they weren't there when I went to the dentist. But they are there now. My Internist saw them (I have been coughing my brains out and too hoarse to sing) so I had to finally asked her after the allergist told me to go to her after seeing the Pulmonologist for asthma which was raging out of control). (The Pulmonologist who xrayed my lungs to rule out pneumonia after listening to my lungs was not worried about my throat at all but the Allergist warned me about that and told me to follow up with my Internist. I waited five hours to see my Internist yesterday. (Isn't it awful being in need of a doctor?) She looked at my throat and sent me to a specialist who I see tomorrow - an Otalaryngologist. Anyway, I looked up what they do. They are a good choice for me as they specialize in people who sing professionally and are located right across from Lincoln Center. I am already in the city tomorrow for an appointment with the Pelvic PT, but I am afraid of having another hpv related cancer. It is entirely possible. I looked it up. White things and swelling in the throat area, the hoarseness the horrible cough the cuts off my air are not good. The Allergist said he thinks I may have something that is also further down in my throat. Please send up your best prayers for me. It may also just be a reaction to the asthma medication.
