Why Is There a Frog in My Throat?

A Guide to Hoarseness

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


When something goes wrong with your voice, you might simply say, “I am hoarse.” Your funny best friend might ask with a smile, “Got a frog in your throat?” Then what? Do you rest your voice? Do you gargle? Do you eat chicken soup? Do you see a doctor? Do you pick up a pill at the pharmacy? Which doctor do you see?

Dr. James P. Thomas answers these questions with a series of stories about individuals with various types of hoarseness. The book is extensively illustrated with color photos covering the spectrum of vocal cord disorders.

Dr. Thomas has traveled widely, lecturing on how easy it is to understand what is wrong with the vocal cords when we hear a hoarse voice. He maintains the website as a complementary resource for patients, medical students and young doctors wanting to know more about the voice. Between the website and the book, an individual should have tools to better interpret and understand hoarseness.
