oral cancer - symptoms

hi...i have hpv and have had 2 red spots which actually are small holes in my mouth for the past 2 years...the linings of my mouth always have some red patterns for the past years. Now, my mouth is paining along the sides and looks like some new grooves developing next to the holes. Can anybody tell me if this could be oral cancer...or what the symptoms are..bcoz i am scared and dont even have basic insurance now..i dont smoke or chew tobacco or not into any drugs etc...somebody plz help me with info...thanks

Re: oral cancer - symptoms


My husband was diagosed with oral cancer in the fall of 2006. His was located more near his tonsils. He had been having headaches, he couldn't open his mouth very wide at times and felt like he had a knife stuck in his throat. After being treated for allergies, they finally found out what it was. He is fine now, but I think alot has to do with catching this sort of cancer early. You really should go and have it checked out just to be sure and if it were to be that, get a second opinion before doing anything. As far as the insurance, that is the last thing you need to worry about. I don't know what your income is, but we did have insurance and what balances we have the doctors and hospitals have been very good with working with us, considering my husband didn't work for 11 months. If your income is below a certain level, most will adjust or do away with any balance due. Good Luck.
