Country singer John Berry recently revealed that he’s undergoing treatment for tonsil cancer, which started as a sore throat.
You know the feeling at the beginning of any pesky cold—congestion, a sore throat, and, probably, swollen tonsils. In rare cases, though, sore throats involving your tonsils could be a sign of cancer, which Grammy-winning country singer John Berry recently experienced.
Berry, 59, shared in a Facebook video that he started feeling a “catch” in his throat that felt just like the “skin of a Spanish peanut was stuck in my throat.” And, when he shined a flashlight down the back of his mouth, he noticed his tonsils were “really swollen.” After a visit to the doctor, he was prescribed a round of antibiotics and steroids, but his symptoms continued. He eventually saw an ear, nose, and throat specialist who had him undergo a CT scan, which revealed that he had two tumors in his tonsils.
Berry’s wife, Robin, said in the video that her husband will undergo treatment for about five weeks, adding that “all is well.” Berry also told his fans that his cancer is “highly treatable” and has an “incredible” 90 percent cure rate.
