Question: Sore throat for over a year
|sorethroat - Sat Nov 05, 2005 5:51 am|
I have had a sore throat for a little over a year. It started after a rock concert when I was screaming alot. I smoke so i never let it heal, thats why i think it lasted this long. I finally quit, which i know i should have a long time ago. So it was now been a week of quiting and it doesnt seem to be healing yet. I am guessing it will go away eventually...
I went to the doctor 3 weeks ago to get a throat culture and the results were negative. So im guessing that is a good sign. If i speak loudly it hurts my throat, so im guessing it is my vocal cords that are damaged.
My question is could this be cancerous or would i maybe need my tonsils removed? Any information would be helpful.

my throat does appear to be red, so im hoping it is just irritaion that will go away. Are there any remedies or medication i could take to help it heal?
