I have had symptoms of throat cancer for 10 years, been to ENT at least 4 times. He says it's not cancer, it's been 3 years since my last visit. Could he have diagnosed me when and would I still be alive if it is cancer
Hello Debbie, no worry, if you have had throat cancer since 3 years earlier, you definately are showing tons of symptoms now.

Factors that can increase your risk of mouth cancer include:

  • Tobacco use of any kind, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco and snuff, among others
  • Heavy alcohol use
  • Excessive sun exposure to your lips
  • A sexually transmitted virus called human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • A weakened immune system
