oral cancer?

today i had my regular dentist appt. and he noticed an area of white on the roof of my mouth. He told me to go to the oral suregeon to get it checked out. Im 17 and I have been smoking cigars for about a year, maybe 3-4 a week, sometimes none, just the occasional, do you think this could be an oral cancer already?

Re: oral cancer?

I was diagnosed with throat cancer in August after a visit to the dentist. I would not put it off. If it is cancer and caught early you have a better chance of survival.
