Our expert says:
You are clearly under a lot of stress, and should give your medication some time. Your social history does not put you in the highrisk group for tumours in that area, but if your symptoms do not improve, it may be wise to get an ENT opinion to exclude a mass lesion in the area that you are describing. This is to give you peace of mind, as you are worried about other possibilities. A normal examination is just as important in your case, and I do recommend that you go back to your doctor. The examination should include an indirect laryngoscopy, and a possible barium swallow if your symotoms wattant this. These investigations can be organised and performed by an ENT surgeon.
