I went to my Oncologist for my 6 month visit and I had him check out my throat issues. He prodded and probed and found no swelling of my glands and lymph nodes. After explaining every detail of what has been going on with my throat and voice over the last 2 weeks, he felt that it was laryngitis but could not totally rule out a small bacterial cyst. He gave me a prescription for a 10 day treatment plan of Amoxicillin. He said the Amoxicillin should take care of the issue but if it doesn't, he will refer me to a Ears, Nose and Throat doctor for further test. He was very confident that whatever was going on, based on his examination, it has nothing to do with cancer. So I will take my medicine and hopefully within a couple of weeks, my throat will feel better. Now maybe I can get a good nights rest.
