Thank you so much for your
communication. Thank you, also, for sharing so much information with me. Whatever
happens in the future, please promise me
that you will NEVER again go back and chew tobacco or use tobacco in any form.
At the outset, please let me put you mind at ease. Cancer of the mouth does not
start with swollen lymph glands. The signs of cancer of the mouth are as
lumps or bumps, rough spots/crusts/or eroded areas on the lips, gums, or other
areas INSIDE the mouth
of velvety white, red, or speckled (white and red) patches in the mouth
bleeding in the mouth
numbness, loss of feeling, or pain/tenderness in any area of the face, mouth,
on the face, neck, or mouth that bleed easily and do not heal within 2 weeks
A soreness or
feeling that something is caught in the back of the throat
or swallowing, speaking, or moving the jaw or tongue
A change in the
way your teeth fit together
Pain in the neck
or ear that does not go away (more than 10-14 days)
Dramatic weight loss
The fact that you have swollen lymph
glands, especially on the right side, is most probably a sign that there is
some form of infection/inflammation in the part drained by that particular
lymph nodes. You must have this seen to. Please make an appointment with your
physician or dentist. Share with him/her everything that you have shared in
this communication – do not withhold any information and I trust that you will
receive effective treatment and that your health problem will be over.
Do not forget that the use of tobacco in
any form is bad for one’s health. Ask you physician to assist you to overcome
any possible addiction to nicotine so that you will not relapse into using
tobacco again. (MCH).
