Glad to hear you are seeing your doctor. Best of luck.

You should have that spot removed and a biopsy done. Mine turned out to be squamish cell cancer and a second one appeared and was removed. Keeping a careful eye out through dental checks every 3 months.

I had a similar situation with a growth at the rear left top of tongue about the size of a pencil eraser. No therapy can done because I am on 24/7 oxygen and the mask they make will not fit over. If they had found any other squamish cell lumps or growths or tumours they would have considered radiation. I have my mouth checked by my dentist every 3 months as she was the doctor that found this originally. HPV can be removed because it is viral. I think that HPV is often present with ovarian cancer too.

I Decided to keep my house. I have hired a gardener who comes weekly to cut the grass and will on request trim/clean flower beds in front and back. He also does snow removal if the winter. I think this is much cheaper than condo fees and still gives me the convenience of living in a house as apposed to a crowded high rise. I have been doing this for 3 years.

Hello JazzJen………my oral cancer is in remission. I have respritory issues and am on oxygen 24/7. I found it took several months to adapt to the oxygen therapy. I do feel I need more sleep or should I say naps. My sleeping pattern has definitely changed. Give yourself some time to get used to the oxygen.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I wonder if primary doctors are still advising no need and after what age? Does this still happen?
