Lump in Mouth Absolutely Terrified

I have a lump above my molar near my maxillary sinus on the right side of my mouth and it has been terrifying me senseless. I went to the dentist because I thought it may have been an abcess. However he said it was not dental and stated that I should see an ENT. He also said that cancer should be the last thing in my mind, but I am still absolutely terrified. It is skin colored and at times looks like a big pimple. However it is not painful. When I googled it, the thing that popped up most was maxillary sinus cancer, which truly horrifies me beyond comprehension. Other than that, it might be a sinus cyst. I am going to my regular doctor tomorrow and hopefully I can get a CT and figure it out. This thing truly terrifies me.

Re: Lump in Mouth Absolutely Terrified

Got myself into a right state with a mouth problem, I also googled everything.
Gp sent me for urgent referral to ENT, after a Laryng: scope in OPD clinic, the consultant found nothing.
Made me feel better, but then booked me for a CT scan. So am still very worried.
But starting to come to my senses abit. On the plus side for me,......
No neck glands, can swallow OK and weight steady. So its fingers crossed.
Things are not always as bad as the first seem.
Doing my researching I did fine one item which may be of interest you.
I am NOT a Doctor but read for yourself....
Its on Oral Fibromas.
Let us know how you get on.
