Oftentimes, symptoms and signs of hypopharyngeal cancer do not develop until the later stages of the condition. It’s important to seek medical attention immediately if you suspect you may have cancer. Early detection can make a big difference in the doctor’s ability to treat the condition.
If you notice any of the symptoms of hypopharyngeal cancer, schedule a screening appointment at Florida Hospital:
- Sore throat that does not get better
- Ear pain
- A lump located in the neck
- Difficulty or pain when swallowing
- Voice change
While these symptoms may indicate hypopharyngeal cancer, they are also similar to the symptoms of many other conditions. A medical diagnosis is the only way to know what is causing your symptoms.
