Re: swelling/tumor on cheek
The best thing is to have the scans and biopsy and see what you are dealing with. It may not be cancer, and the only way to know is when the results of the tests come back. It sounds like they are checking for sinus cancer, which is actually not very common, and microwaving his food wouldn't have caused it. It's often something that people may get after years of working with certain chemicals, or treated wood dust but actually in many cases they just don't know what causes it. Don't jump to conclusions yet though, even the ENT can not confirm cancer until your father has these tests.
