Raspy Voice


Recommended Posts

Recently my voice has become raspy. Not constantly just every once in a while, no pain or other symptoms, nothing out of the norm to possibly have created it With the lymph nodes in my bronchial area affected I’m concerned this could be cancer connected. I know others who have cancer and their voices are raspy. Does the bronchial tubes affect the voice or is it the Esophagus

There is a nerve that sometimes gets affected by the cancer (recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy). It sometimes also gets affected during surgery.

I think in most cases it is probably something else (infection, strained voice cords, etc). Tell your Dr about your concern. The article below (link) says if it lasts 2-3 weeks (along with other symptoms)

I would tell your Dr.

When oncdoc responds he can add/correct anything I have posted
