Throat Cancer?

Hello, I am a 26 year old male and have been experiencing a lump like feeling in my throat for about 3 weeks. I have had trouble breathing through my mouth. I get sore throats on and off and also have woken with a nose bleed about a week ago which has never happened. I have had headaches for 4 months straight. The lump feels like my throat is about halfway open right behind my adams apple. I am worried that it may be throat cancer. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi.. maybe you should have your thyroid gland checked....My thyroid gland is enlarged and has some cysts..although they're not big enough to be noticeble....But it happends

Mention it to your doctor and he/she should be able to feel your thyroid gland and be able to suggest for you to see a specialist...

I suggest you see an Ear nose and throat specialist. They will be able to take a look in your nasal area as well as in your throat. So suggest to your family doctor you would like to see your  local specialist.
