Oral cancer/tongue

The guy I have been with for a little over a year has a small white growth on his tongue, and is scared to death to get it looked at. I have done research on oral cancers, and the outcomes never seem to be good. Is there anyone that has a good story of survival from an oral cancer? I am so lost on this. I don't even know what to ask or where to begin asking. I am going to take him to get it looked at, but I am scared too.

Being scared is very normal but don't jump to conclusions ahead of time. That growth on his tongue could be anything, not necessarily cancer. There are success stories. Please check Head and Neck Cancers on this section and also the webpage of MonsterM. He is a success story.
