Hi everyone - I was a long time lurker on these boards because about 10 years ago I lost my father at age 27 to a rare large tumor in his leg that eventually metastacized and caused an Aneurysm.
So my story is this, about a year or two ago I saw white patches on the sides of my tongue and immediately was concerned as I'm a hypochondriac for sure. After seeing a few doctors everyone has dismissed it as Frictional Keratosis as I had my Wisdom Teeth out very late in life and my teeth are now malformed and rub on my teeth.
My problem is this waxes and wanes. I do get pain with spicy foods, but only sometimes. It just feels like my tongue is too big at this point. My question is, is waxing and waning a symptom of tongue cancer? I know I need a 4th opinion at this point and probably need a BPA Free Mouthguard.
