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!!!!
