Hi..im new here and came across this site earlier this week i’m 25 and am planning on making a doctors appointment next week because of a pain in my throat that has come up recently. I’ve been drinking hard liquor, mostly whiskey or brandy straight and have done so 5 times a week for the past year..(usually a quarter of a pint to half a pint) I’m really not sure what to make of it..i wouldn’t think its possible to develop throat cancer within just a year of drinking but I have been drinking almost daily for a full year now. I have a family history of alcoholism and I am also half native american. i used to smoke but i quit smoking almost a year ago.
i would just like to hear thoughts mainly on my sore throat problems
