I was told by my dentist to contact my gp and she hinted at cancer. I have a very painful swelling / lump (maybe salivary gland?) above jaw line, a one sided sore throat, one sided back of tongue pain and ear ache. My neck also hurts and a slight swelling near collar bones. I never put all these symptoms together before today. Symptoms were here for weeks (3 to 4 months actually).
No appointment available till next week.
I'm feeling very scared. Could it really be?
