could this be throat cancer
I am 33 I have smoked for 17 years heavy at times up to 2 packs a day. I noticed my throat s irritated alt lately and found a abnormality in the general area. I know its almost impossible to diagnose over the internet, but I was hoping I could get some general info or maybe somebody on here has seen something similar. I don't have insurance and haven't been to a doctor in 12 years

Hi,
How are you? What other symptoms are present? I understand your concern regarding throat cancer  but this usually presents with  cough; changes in your voice, such as hoarseness; difficulty swallowing; ear pain;  lump or sore that doesn't heal;  sore throat and weight loss. Throat irritation alone  may be attributed to a variety of issues such as  infection, inflammation, and even allergy. For proper evaluation, it is best that you have this checked by your ENT doctor. Take care and do keep us posted.
