Is this a possibility of Oral Cancer? Near one of my teeth (bottom canine), I noticed a small grey spot. It does not hurt, but I have never seen anything like it before. It is right on the base of my tooth. This tooth has had a root canal and a temporary put in it.
I am also a smoker for 4-5 years. I'm really scared.
We can't know for certain whether you have cancer or not. I would have a medical professional check it out for you, just to make sure.
Even if this isn't cancer, I hope that this scares you enough to stop smoking. I watched my parents quit smoking, and saw what they went through. It scared me enough, that I never started smoking. It's a terrible addiction that's hard to break. I hope that you can do it.
Hi, i am 25 and i smoked for 9 years i am 1 and a half hours away from being smoke free for two weeks. I am quitting because i am affraid i also have cancer after i have had all sorts of weird stuff happen all over my body. I am going in for a ct scan of my abdomen and pelvis tomarrow. Any ways as for your throat cancer it doesn't seem likely but stop smoking anyways for other health reasons like young healty lungs.
I'm thinking it went okay. I went in to get a loose tooth fixed. I didn't get an actual oral cancer exam, but he looked at the grey spot - He said it could've been from the filling (Eventhough it's not a silver filling).
He did a full Xray session, and he didn't mention anything about any cancer (he took xrays of my whole mouth, and looked at the gums, kind of).. So, I'm assuming that is a good sign.
I don't know where I would've gotten that grey spot from, but he said it had been there for awhile, and it's nothing to worry about. Doesn't sit right with me, but I'm not a dentist.
