hi for the past couple of months it feels like there is something is constantly stuck in my throat and its starting to get on my nerves, im 20 years of age and male. i went to the doctors about it like a week after it had started, he said it was nothing more than a throat infection, he prescribed me a strong ibuprofen witch i had to take for 2 weeks, it did seem to calm down when i was taking them but it still feels like its still there, the thing is though its not causing any pain for me atal its just a major annoyance, i cough a lil then usual but thats about it, and also every time i take ibuprofen it stops for a while then comes back like hours later ? i just hope its nothing serious as cancer is my worst fear. would anyone have an idea what this could be ?

Thanks !

Can you cough it out? Throat mucus can be described as that uncomfortable feeling that you experience when mucus clogs up your throat or drips from the back of your nose. Throat disorders such as tonsillitis, strep throat, catarrh, laryngitis often have symptoms of mucus in the throat. Clearing your throat will help the phlegm loosen or break up in the back of the throat, giving way to the uncomfortable feeling . Make sure that you drink plenty of liquids such as water, juice or tea with honey, and gargle daily with warm salt water to thin out mucus. Various over-the-counter medications such as paracetamol, ibuprofen, antiseptic gargles or saline nasal sprays may also offer pain relief.

The main causes of an itchy throat are viral, bacterial or fungal infections of the throat, dry, allergies, acid reflux, continuous vomiting, diagnostic procedures, singing or speaking loudly for a long time, infection of sinus or lungs, tumors in throat wall or vocal cords, etc. Gargling with lukewarm saline water is one of the popular itchy throat remedies. Add 4 tablespoons of water to three cups of water and boil the solution. Use it for gargling, when it cools down a little. Repeat the process every few hours for better results.

No, need to apologize. First of all don't even think about cancer. Yes, coughing blood and voice loss would sound serious, but you don't want to reach that point. Smoker's cough typically doesn't affect new smokers but it will often bother people who smoke heavily, especially over a period of many years. When/if you quit smoking it may take several weeks before your lungs begin to recover from smoking. I read that it takes seven years for your lungs to recover completely. I know how hard quitting cigarette can be, but do it for you. It may be challenging to quit, but smoker’s cough indicates that your respiratory system is damaged. If your cough is caused by some infection you'll need antibiotics. The healing time depends on cause an severity of the infection.

Thank you for your help, I now can take my mind of it been serious & actually get some sleep instead of worrying about what it could be , if this hasn't gone within 5weeks of quitting smoking i shall go back to the doctors and get some antibiotics.

Kind regards
