    Is this oral cancer??? Help!!!

    Hi All,

    I have a quick question. I am a 32 year old male, and have been dipping snuff for about 10 years. Only a few of those years were heavy, most just casually. I am in the process of quitting, but I have been freaking out lately because I sometimes get pain in the jaw (off and on, sort of dull) and sometimes my ears ache. I read that this is a sign of oral cancer. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I am really scared. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

    guyindallas -- You should go to your doctor and possibly get a referral to an ENT if possible.
    That being said, is it on both sides, or just one? I have Myofacial pain disorder, and I have pain on my right side of my jaw and in my right ear when it's bad. Also in my neck and shoulder when it's really bad. I clench my teeth, which is what causes it for me. Do you feel any lumps or see any mouth sores?

    one of the first signs of an oral cancer from what you described you did would most likely be some sort of a blister type thing(most likely white in color?) on the inside of the lower lip.but it is possible to get it in other places.but just having 'jaw pain' could be from many many possible reasons.cancer would not be the first thing on this list of possible reasons.if this pain continues or worsens,it would be something to see your doc about just to find out what is actually causing it.but honestly,cancer really would be a more last Dx type of thing .good luck,and let us know how you are doing.**
