I wen to the radiologist stst per my heart specialist. In radiology I saw a big white spot on the xray and asked the radiologist what it was and he said nothing. I have been taking allergy shots for almost two years and the roof of my mouth still itch along with my throat that when rubbed makes the nodes get real big. NOTHING is working. I know I need to find and review those xrays with my primary doctor and not a tech,,,,,getting nervous about throat cancer.
I can understand your apprehensions. Depending on the location a white spot can be an artifact (came during processing) or your lung’s hilar area (normal finding) or bony attachment of ribs. Also the patch can be tubercular or pneumonic. At times allergic bronchitis gives patchy picture. Without viewing the film, its just a shot in the dark. So, please review with your doctor.
Regarding your throat symptoms, apart from allergy, the symptoms can be due to gastric reflux causing acid burn on roof of your mouth. You can take omeprazole and antacid gels and see if it helps. Also, discuss this possibility with your doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!
