Throat cancer

It's a little weird about 3 weeks ago I started to develop a sharp burning pain in the roof of my mouth soon after eating , afterwards by about 30mns everything went away ... Then by time the pain became more aggravated by mouth movements like yawning talking ... Then few days ago the pain became persistent but in a low grade pattern like a cold then it became again burning severe after eating and aggravated by the same factors mentioned before .. I am a male 26 yrs old healthy I examined myself and there were no lumps in my neck ,,, so what is that possible to be I am concerned with cancer because of its persistence ,, I don't know if it's herd or something more serious

  Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.

This is a support forum for those with GERD/acid reflux....I understand you are reaching out for input and direction but the best way to get that is 1- see  your Dr and 2- look to family medical history....

Keep a journal of what you eat and do that triggers these symptoms to flare as it may help your Dr pinpoint what to look for...

Please keep us posted on your progress to answers.

  I understood your question but we are not Drs and even a Dr could not give you an answer to that question...anything is possible but it is best to wait and see what the Dr tells you and in the mean time try to avoid foods and bevs that could trigger a flare up if this is only a  GERD issue.

I also know how waiting to see a Dr adds stress, but there is no way for us to know...but anything is possible...and why I suggested to look to your families medical history to see if anyone in your family have had either of the 2 in question.

Praying all goes well for you....keep us posted.
