Since 2 days ago,i noticed my left side of the neck was slightly swollen.I went to the doctor and he said it was slightly swollen. But i am still afraid that it might be throat cancer because my neck is a little painful at times and the left side of my cheekbone has abit of pain at times.I also suffer from hypochondria.I am a smoker aged 20,been smoking for a year now.

some of my friends told me that the swelling is bad whereas one of my friends said he cant notice anything and another one said it has gone down.I am so scared and i am uploading the pics here and i really hope u guys can see and really really advice me.Thank you so much guys. ieldheroez/SL3802a57.jpg ieldheroez/SL3802a59.jpg ieldheroez/SL380e264.jpg ieldheroez/SL380e269.jpg ieldheroez/SL380e279.jpg ieldheroez/SL380e288.jpg ieldheroez/SL380e289.jpg

If found early, throat and mouth cancers are often curable. Treatments may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or a combination. If you suspect a problem, you may want to follow up again with a specialist and even request diagnostic tests.
