What is this?
Let me preface this by saying I don't have insurance. The left side of my throat and tongue have been somewhat sore when swallowing. Particularly when I swallow food. It comes and goes whenever I'm not eating. I get a random pain in my left ear too, but that doesn't happen too often. What could this be and what can I do too treat it.

You do not have enough info to figure this one out.  Are you dipping? Do you favor one side of your mouth because of a tooth ache?  You may have an infection.  I am thinking that since your ear mouth and tongue are all the same you do need to go to the doctor because you more than likely have a need for antibiotics.  Does the back of your throat have white patches? When you blow your nose is it yellow or green?  Again not enough info. sorry

I don't want to scare you, but you really should get it checked out; I had some of the same symptoms and mine was cancer of the tongue. That was this last time, in April of last year - the 4th time. I was first diagnosed in 2008, and had two cancers taken off my tongue in two months; then in early 2009 I had a malignant lymph node in my neck removed. Chemo and radiation followed in Sept./Oct. of '09, then I was cancer-free up until April of '12. I just had a clear CT scan, and I will have another PET scan on Valentine's day to be sure there's nothing there.
