mandym85 have you been to see a doctor or self medicating. If you have not been to see a doctor do see one. you can not fix this problem yourself. If you are seeing a doctor get a second opinion as it appears he/she does not have a clue as to what the problem is. This is nothing to ignore you need to get it taken care of now.
toadboo it is a yeast infection better known as thrush. Return to your doctor or a different doctor so the medication can be changed or clarification on how to take the medication and what foods should you avoid and what foods help eliminate the yeast. Also be sure to perform proper dental hygene at least twice a day. wView Thread
anon Sorry about the delay in respondig. If you are still experiencing these same syptoms see a doctor and explain you situation. It is better safe than sorry. Let me suggest you lay off the tobacco. To take youur mind off things get a hobby. It can be simple as reading or put you creativity to work by sculpting, drawing, painting or anything else that uses your immagination. In other words redirect your energy to something that will help you make friends who want to be around you do to a positve attitude instead of a negative attitude. no one wants to listen to health problems or to some one who has nothing positive to say.
Anniehallic Only your doctor can make an accurate diagnosis. Please do not wait any longer in seeing your doctor. IF it is cancer the longer you wait the more extensive the treatment and the possibility of it spreading through your body. wView Thread
Sorry I just tried the web site address above and it did not go through. How i found the site was to type in free health care in texas and a list of sites came up. You will need to go through the list to see what you can find. There is free health care out there it is just a matter of searching the web and following up on what you find.
nicholas289 The chances are it is another cancer. The reoccurence for oral cancer is high in the first 5 years. That is the reason you should have frequest follow up appointments. A great web site is the oral canceer website. WView Thread
anon your dentist should be checking for any changes in your mouth and lymph nodes by looking and feeling inside your mouth and your neck under your jaw. IF there is a change he will refer you to a specialist. This is another reason to visit your dentist at least once a year. My husband ignored the dentist and now has been diagnosed with oral cancer stage 3. For those who have loved ones who refuse to go to the dentist keep on nagging. At some point they will tire of your nagging and go to the dentist to stop the nagging. wView Thread
