Q.

Food gets trapped in my throat passage


Hi

The food gets stuck in my throat passageway resulting in a very bad breathe; i can feel it whenever i swallow, i have realised that this is teh main cause for my bad breathe, i brush my teeth thoughly including my tounge, but after swallowing saliva the bad breathe comes back.

what causes this, and how can i make sure that the food doesn;t get stuck and rotten on my throat? Am i prone to Throat Cancer? How do I prevent this?

Please help!

Hi Toya

I think it is best if you see an ENT specialist.
