swelling/tumor on cheek
My father, aged 90. Three month back had swelling on cheek, the GP saw inside and said ulcer and Rx augmentin. The swelling disappeared. It is difficult to view inside mouth but we were satisfied that it has gone. 15 days back same thing appeared again. This time GP advised us to go to ENT , the ENT said he suspects malignancy and needs ct scan and biopsy. My father had heart attack in past and needs angised on and off. There are so many question marks. Would it be malignant, would anesthetist clear for surgery? I may add his energy level and appetite are not affected. Could this be malignant? He was using too much micro wave to warm up foods. Appreciate your inputs. Thanks.
