HI all. I went to my doc this week. I have something in the back of my mouth, up above where your tonsils are. Doc says it looks like lymph material, but he's not particularly worried about it. He did, however make me an appiontment with an ENT, can't get in until another week from Monday, but the last few days, the whole side of that side of my head hurts, including my ear, throat, neck, etc. I've had cancer before, breast cancer, and noticed I had been coughing alot when I lay on that sie at night. If I turned over to my back or the other side, the coughing stopped completely. I thought it was just from some sinus drainage. So one day I got a flashlight and low and behold there this this 'thing' there in the back of my mouth :( Very scary. My brother has already had cancer in the bottom of his mouth, my dad died of lung cancer and my grandfather had esophageal cancer.
I can't find any pics that look like what I have though. Can anyone give me any information that might help calm me down a bit, or does anyone have any idea, or have had the same experience?
