Hoarse Voice

I am a 79 year old male taking Gleevec for 15 years for CML. I am constantly getting a hoarse voice. It doesn't hurt, but I can't project my voice high enough to be heard. I also have high blood pressure and take meds. I had my tonsils out when I was four years old.

Melissa Kim M.S., CCC-SLP replies...
There are any number of possible explanations for your vocal symptoms. The only way to determine the cause of your voice difficulties and appropriate treatment strategies is to be evaluated by an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician.

Good luck!
