    What could this be???!!!!!!!

    Ok, let me start by saying, my hubby IS going to the doctor this week to get this looked at. So, really I'm just trying to get feedback to calm myself down while I wait for the expert Doctor opinion.

    My hubby has a dark red, like burgundy, spot/bump (?) under his tongue on the floor of his mouth.

    He can't say how long it's been there, but he uses a water pik regularly, so I think it's a fairly new development.

    He doesn't see a dentist regularly, but hasn't really had many tooth decay issues. He did smoke from age 14 to age 36. So, there's that. He is 45 years old now. No significant health issues. Although he could stand to lose about 25 pounds.

    He says the spot doesn't hurt.
    But what could this be? My first initial thought is Oral Cancer and I'm trying not to freak out. Could it be a broken blood vessel from the water pik use? Can that even happen? Anything ELSE it could be other than Oral Cancer?

    Thanks in advance for any responses.
