The throat is the front part of the neck that includes the pharynx and larynx. It is necessary to take adequate care of the throat as it allows food delivery from the mouth to the stomach. It also helps transport air from the mouth and nose to the trachea via the larynx. Further, it also helps in speaking. The Epiglottis in the neck ensures that the food does not enter the respiratory system. Several diseases, such as chronic cough, sore throat, cancer, and Sjogren’s syndrome, affect the throat. Patients must consult the doctor if they experience any symptoms of a throat infection.

Some of the measures that help maintain ear health are:

  • Avoid listening to music at high volume
  • Ask the employers to take measures to reduce noise at the workplace
  • Take regular breaks while using headphones for music or other purposes
  • Keep the sound of television or radio at a low level
  • Avoid using cotton buds
  • Consult the doctor if you experience any reduction in hearing or have discharge from the ear
  • Undergo regular ear screening
  • Keep the ears dry

Swallowing is a process that involves several muscles and nerves. Any condition that affects the working of nerves or muscles results in difficulty swallowing, or dysphagia. Several conditions may cause swallowing problems. Some of them are:

  • Esophageal dysphagia: It involves a sensation of food sticking in the throat or the chest during swallowing. Causes of esophageal dysphagia are esophageal strictures, achalasia, esophageal tumor, diffuse spasm, foreign bodies, GERD, esophageal ring, eosinophilic esophagitis, and scleroderma. It may also occur if the patient has a history of undergoing radiation therapy.
  • Oropharyngeal dysphagia: Patients may have several conditions that weaken the throat muscles. As a result, the patient has trouble moving the food from the mouth to the throat and esophagus. The food may also move into the trachea or up into the nose. It increases the risk of pneumonia. Causes of oropharyngeal dysphagia are cancer, neurological disorders, such as muscular dystrophy, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, neurological damage due to brain or spinal cord injury or stroke, and pharyngoesophageal diverticulum.
