I have a growth on my throat next to my vocal chords and it is blocking 1/2 my windpipe. I'm having surgery in 2 weeks to remove it for the second time in 10 months. My ENT kept telling me that reflux was the issue, but an Endoscopy showed no signs of reflux. The pathology from the 1st one was benign and tested negative for paploma virus. They are basically telling me that they don't know what it is and that I just have to keep having surgery to take it out. I can't continue with that plan for the next 20 years so I'm asking for some help. Has anyone else had this issue?
