Do I have Oral Cancer?

Yesterday I went to my dentist and she told me I had two burns on both sides of my mouth around the canine teeth, on the inside (mouth roof). Another doctor came in, asked me if I smoked, I told him one or two cigarettes a day (strictly social smoker). Although I do smoke weed out of a bong (water pipe) multiple times a day, and I'm not proud of it.

He prodded at what he told me was white skin and he told me that it came right off (I didn't feel anything) and he asked me if I smoked again and I said 1 yesterday, 1 the day before and then he said he normally attributes white stuff with cancer but he wasn't sure. He asked me to come back next week before he would send me to a specialist.

Well today is the next day and I looked at my mouth roof and behind some of the front teeth, on the roof gum, there was a big white spot. I got a piece of metal and prodded at it but it was as hard as the rest of my mouth roof. I went to the dentist but they closed at 3.

When a mechanic can't figure a problem I have with a car, I go to the internet and some kind soul always figures out how to help me. I'm hoping that this method works for human beings as well because the last few years of my life have just been honestly unlucky in the most horrible ways. My life has been so mathematically astonishing it's incredible. I'm ready for my luck to come back.

Thank you for your time.

Re: Do I have Oral Cancer?

Sounds like you may have leukoplakia. It is a pre cancerous condition. It would be wise to go to an oral surgeon and have it biopsied.
My Dad had the same thing, he quit smoking and all of the patches cleared up. Maybe this is the universe telling you that you should stop smoking....everything.

blessings, Sue

Re: Do I have Oral Cancer?

When I smoke I take a hit and keep it in for like 10 seconds then blow it out so no smoke gets out, maybe that wasn't a good idea, I don't know. Would I be able to use a vaporizer? I mean something that atomizes the oils in the plant into a kind of vapor smoke.

Should I undergo a bunch of cancer tests as well as quit smoking anything?

Thank you for your response.

Re: Do I have Oral Cancer?

I think a biopsy of the area is a smart idea just so you know exactly what you're dealing with.
