Lump on my tongue

28 Dec 2017 05:57

Hello my name is Lisa and 7 years ago I had a benign brain tumour. Yes they removed all of it but i am a different person... really bad head aches and lots lots more but I'm here to write this and my kids and hubby have there mum/wife.

I have had a lump on my tongue for 4 of 5 months with like a white coating over it. They did a biopsy but only on the surface not the lump..  yesturday we went for results .. a different consultant saw us and said i am please to say the biopsy is ok no cancerous cells.. he then looked into my mouth and looked at the lump... he looked for about 5 seconds and went completely different started stuttering.. couldn't find the right words to say when dictating a letter.. he is going to remove all the lump on my tongue very urgently and will send away for retest as feels only surface was taken not lump...

Has any one had a huge lump taken from there tongue please. 

Thankyou xxx
