Hey, thanks for taking the time to read this. I am hoping someone can give me a little feedback on this. First off, I'll give you some background. I am a 21/F and an ex-cigarette smoker. I was never a heavy smoker, but smoked about a half-pk/day over the yrs. I have NEVER used snuff and have never been much into drinking. Overall, I am in good health.
Okay, here goes. I was looking in the mirror yesterday and noticed a tiny pinpoint-sized red mark on the inside of my cheek. I've never seen anything like this before, but then again I don't usually look inside my mouth for any reason. I am kind of a hypochondriac and so I started to freak out thinking it was mouth cancer. I went on a search engine & looked it up and looked at all kinds of pictures but nothing looked even remotely like this mark.
I had bitten the inside of my cheek pretty hard about a week ago & the bite-mark is right next to the red mark. Someone told me it is most likely just a blood spot from that, but I am still kinda worried. Should I go get this checked out by my dentist? (I was just there before Christmas). I'm just scared because if it is cancer, it could spread pretty fast. What do you think? Has anyone experienced anything like this?
