I have a problem, for a few months I have a sensation of something in the left part of my throat, it is more accute in the evenings and in the mornings I cannot feel it. I am 19 years old and I smoke for about 3 years ( I am trying to quit now, very sorry I started). I am stressed because I think it might be cancer, what do you think ? I studied a bit on the internet and saw that throat cancer is allmost 0 in my age group and I am not smoking for so long. I am very stressed because I have a job and go to a very difficult University, could this be the cause of stress (I am very stressed at home too with problems in the family). I would highly appreciate any directions you can give me. Please tell me your opinion, I will visit a specialist, but what is your guess ? Could it be cancer ?
