Don't worry lybrate-user. .it can even be a tonsil cyst or an ulcer which are both non cancerous. Do you have throat pain or any swaying difficult which is there since few days then it's definitely not cancer. For detailed opinion sent me the pic of that whitish part.

I'm 24 years old and I am a self-learned singer. I sing Country, Hard Rock, Metal (Screams and Growls). I am concerned about my throat. It's pretty intimidating because practising wrongly can inculcate bad habits of singing from your throat that can be harmful for our Vocal cords. Where can I find a professional and experienced Doctor. Who can guide me to take care of my throat for singing such of vocals? Also is there a need to go for a throat check-up frequently in order to ensure that you don't develop any nodules or polyps? If Yes, Where?

Polyps appear on either one or both of the vocal cords. They appear as a swelling or bump (like a nodule), a stalk-like growth, or a blister-like lesion. ... The best way to think about the difference between nodules and polyps is to think of a nodule as a callous and a polyp as a blister.

Sir, approx 2 months ago, I started to feel some obstacles inside my throat and my voice was changed little bit. I went to a general physician and he gave me some medicine and told me that was throat infection. After taking the medicines my voice recovered but the felling of obstacle still present. It felt like when I am swallowing something in the inside of my throat was moving. Then I went to another doctor who told me that it was the problem due to dust allergy and gave me the medicines mentioned-LC and Cyclotin-10 for 20 days. But nothing happened. Then I went to an E.N.T specialist. She told me that it was due to acidity and gave me two medicines Rabonik plus and Rantac-150. She also told me to quit smoking. I smoked occasionally and also stopped that two months ago when this problem was started. I am going through her medicine but nothing improvement happened. What should I do? The obstacle felt at the left side of my throat.

Dear user. I can understand. You are HEALTH ANXIOUS, it seems. Hypochondriasis is an Obsession with the idea of having a serious but undiagnosed medical condition. Health anxiety is not a serious mental disorder but without proper treatment the person affected could be depressed and continuously engaged in negative thoughts. I suggest online counseling, cognitive Behavior Therapy and Relaxation therapy. Take care.
