Throat cancer symptoms vary from person to person and depend on where the cancer first develops. Early signs of throat cancer may include:
- Hoarseness or other change in the voice
- Difficulty swallowing or the feeling that something is caught in the throat
- Persistent sore throat
- Ear pain
- Lump in the neck
- Breathing problems
- Unexplained weight loss
These symptoms do not always mean you have throat cancer. However, it is important to discuss them with your doctor, since they may signal other health problems.
