Can Anyone Help Me Please???????????

I Am Going To The Dentist Tomorrow And I Am Scared To Death. Not Of The Dentist But What May Be Ahead Of Me. I Have Had Little Lumps On Both Sides Of My Tongue (they Don't Bleed And They Don't Hurt) But They're Not Going Away And I've Had Them For About Three Weeks Now. I Also Feel A Little Lump On The Inside Of My Cheek. I'm So Afraid I Have Oral Cancer. I Am A Smoker So That Makes It Worse. Can Someone Give Me Positive News. Sure Hope So Cuz I'm Going Out Of My Mind. Haven't Told Anyone In My Family So I'm Going Through This Alone.

Hopefully this is NOT oral cancer... but the good news is that if it is detected early, it will not develop into a life threatening situation. A co-worker of mine had oral cancer and they removed the lesion and she needed no further treatment and is doing fine! Good luck to you!!!!
