hoarse voice

Recommended Posts

My mom lost her voice before she was ever diagnosed with SCLC. The ENT said her vocal cord is paralyzed because of the lung tumor pressing on the recurrent laryngeal nerve. I know from perusing this website that other people are in her situation. Would anyone be willing to chime in and let me know what, if anything, they have done about it?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

This same thing happened with my father. In fact, the reason he was originally diagnosed is because he went to specialists to see why he had lost his voice.

He remained hoarse for about 6 months. His chemotherapy eventually shrank the tumors and his voice came back to about 85%.
