Ricola Oropharyngeal Pain Causes and Reviews
Throat cancer is a type of head and neck cancer. Throat cancer has different names, depending on which part of the throat is affected. The different parts of your throat are called the oropharynx, the hypopharynx, the nasopharynx, and the larynx, or voice box.
The main risk factors for throat cancer are using tobacco heavy drinking. Certain types of throat cancer also have other risk factors. For example, having HPV is a risk factor for oropharyngeal cancer.
Symptoms of throat cancer may include
- A sore throat that does not go away
- A lump in the neck
Pain or ringing in the ears
- Trouble swallowing
To diagnose throat cancers, doctors may do a physical exam and history, imaging tests, and a biopsy. You may also need other tests, depending on the type of cancer. Treatments include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Treatment for some types of throat cancer may also include targeted therapy. Targeted therapy uses substances that attack cancer cells without harming normal cells.

Ricola Oropharyngeal Pain Reviews
|Mon, 11 Apr 2011 |
I am taking hydrochorothyazide (water pill) for blood pressure. I took some Delsym last night for my post nasal drip cough. I slept approx. 5 hours and that was it. I got up to use the bathroom and the room was spinning. I couldn't get my balance. I felt dizzy most of the morning and only started feeling better after lunch. I felt 'hyper' and nervous, like my heart was racing. Jittery. I felt like I was charged up on caffeine or drunk or something. I'm lucky I was able to drive to work. No more Delsym fo rme. I'll stick to Ricola cough drops.
