    If your infection is responding to antibiotics, that is good reason to believe your infection is bacteria based. Cancer in the mouth takes years to develop and you are so lung, it is extremely unlikely. I would just keep following the doctor's orders and finish the antibiotics. If you are still having symptoms after the antibiotics, schedule another doctor's appointment (ENT) and let them know the symptoms you are experiencing.

    I think you should be find. Be well and let us know how you are doing.
