have not been diagnosed with oral cancer but have a big fear of it and I am worried that I could. I have been to my medical DR and he said that it looked like I got a swollen gland that is related to my jaw pain. I asked him if he thought it could be oral cancer and he said that he didn't think so. If I may ask, how many in here that has had oral cancer smoked,or chewd and also how old are you now and how old was you when you was diagnosed.
I have always thought oral cancer was in older people but i wounder. I am 34 years old and a non smoker and never have i chewing tobacco and drink once in a geat while. Any and all help and suggestion would be helpful if you don't mind...Thanks again
