Neck Cancer Symptoms and Treatment

MBBS, MS - ENT
ENT Specialist, Delhi
Neck Cancer Symptoms and Treatment

Neck cancer refers to the formation of cancer cells in the throat or neck region of your body. Neck cancer is commonly seen in people above sixty years of age .But people above forty can also have the chances of getting neck cancer. Though the symptoms of neck cancer can vary from one person to the other, 

Some of the common symptoms are stated as follows:

  1. Neck cancer affects the voice box, so a change in your voice can be noticed.
  2. Weight loss is also a symptom for neck cancer.
  3. A person suffering from neck cancer can also suffer from dysphagia or difficulty in swallowing.
  4. Sore throat in some cases can be considered as a symptom of neck cancer
  5. Bleeding from mouth or through your nose is also a common symptom for neck cancer.
  6. Ear pain in some cases is a symptom of neck cancer.
  7. Coughing persistently is also regarded as a symptom of neck cancer.
  8. Sometimes a lump in the neck is also noticed and it is usually painless.
  9. Some people also encounter breathing problem.
  10. In some cases a swelling of the neck, jaw or eyes can also be noticed.

Neck cancer involves certain risk factors too. Neck cancer can be treated in many ways. The following are few treatments available for neck cancer:

  1. Surgery: Your doctor can conduct a surgery for removing the tumors from your neck region. The doctor may decide to do either a microsurgery or laser treatment or endoscopy.
  2. Chemotherapy: If the tumor spreads to other regions or is large in size, then your doctor may recommend chemotherapy. 
  3. Radiation: It is used to destroy the malignant cells. It is usually conducted after removing the tumor.

These three are the common treatments followed by doctors. Your doctor may also take help of other treatments like administering drugs to control the growth of cancer cells. But, sometimes treatments fail to work if the process of metastasis starts. So you should not ignore it, as soon as you encounter any of the symptoms stated above, visiting an oncologist is highly recommended.

MD - Oncology

Neck nodes are a part of spread from primary site in head and neck cancer. Do a biopsy or simple FNAC to check if its cancer or not. If it comes positive for cancer then do a CT Scan of head and neck and meet an oncologist or ent specialist

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciagte you seeking help. First and foremost, I would advise that you stay cool and not be overly anxious. Gynecomastia does not mean breast cancer. It is a benign enlargement of the breast tissue triggered mostly by hormonal imbalance, the exact underlying cause of which needs to be ascertained. You should visit an endocrinologist and get this clinically examined in person. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely.

I am 64yrs. Old. I am taking urimax-f for the last one year for enlarged prostrate. How long should I take it?

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
Since when you have this condition? to help control the symptoms of an enlarged prostate, try to: limit beverages in the evening. Don't drink anything for an hour or two before bedtime to avoid middle-of-the-night trips to the toilet. Limit caffeine and alcohol. They can increase urine production, irritate the bladder and worsen symptoms. Limit decongestants or antihistamines. These drugs tighten the band of muscles around the urethra that control urine flow, making it harder to urinate. Go when you first feel the urge. Waiting too long might overstretch the bladder muscle and cause damage. Schedule bathroom visits. Try to urinate at regular times such as every four to six hours during the day to" retrain" the bladder. This can be especially useful if you have severe frequency and urgency. Follow a healthy diet prescribed by registered dietitan. Obesity is associated with enlarged prostate. Stay active. Inactivity contributes to urine retention. Even a small amount of exercise can help reduce urinary problems caused by an enlarged prostate. Urinate and then urinate again a few moments later. This practice is known as double voiding. Keep warm. Colder temperatures can cause urine retention and increase the urgency to urinate. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

MBBS, MD - Radiothrapy

I am not sure what do you mean by loss. But earing mangoes have no bearing on cancer, disease process itself or its treatment unless he or she has some other illness such as diabetes for which he or she has been advices against eating fruits.

Alternative Medicine Specialist, Bhubaneswar
Hi , I appreciate you seeking help. Well, weight loss, weakness, anorexia, ascitis, edema etc all are seen in liver cancer. Your low appetite, and hence the associated weight loss, may be because of the side effect of present medication as well. You can check with your oncologist / physician on the same too. In general, however, I would advise that you try having multiple small meals than three larger ones. Should your health permit, you can also go for some gentle yet safe exercises (like walking) which is likely to help too. Try have healthy and balanced meals that suit your taste, and also have it in a relaxed environment. You may listen to music or watch your favorite TV program while taking your food. You can connect with me with all relevant diagostics & treatment history to help you out specifically with safe natural medications that can ameliorate your present heath concerns. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely,
