Found a lump in roof of my mouth it’s been there couple of weeks- getting bigger now. Stupidly I’ve googled it and I have lots of the causes of mouth cancer and lump too. Can’t get a doc or Dentist app and now I’m in full on panic mode. Anyone able to hand hold? My Dh is suffering with anxiety and best friends both going through marriage trouble so not got anyone I can talk to atm
Firstly stay away from Google. It has you thinking youve got a minute to live. Also of course you can talk to your friend. I'm sure you're there for there with what she is going through. it has to work both ways. Can you try and call your GP surgery back and tell them how petrified you are. My Doctors often gives emergency appointments or ones where you have to sit wait but you are seen on that day. You just may wait a few hours.
I agree beefy, dr Google is no ones friend! I have diagnosed myself with many things, been to the gp and a relieving explanation has been found each time! I have had quite a few doctors tell me not to look! If you need to what about an urgent care centre?
I have health anxiety issues. A few weeks ago I discovered a problem with my gums and when I googled it showed a pre-cancerous condition, photos etc, EXACTLY the same as what I had.
Made emergency dental appointment where he was able to confirm that I had cut myself with an electric toothbrush I changed back to a soft manual one and as the dentist predicted, all is now back to normal.
