Again thankyou both for the info. it puts my mind at ease a bit.
John haha it is true, my mouth and throat is a bit of a warzone atm,i did have a bit of a big weekend when i did some things i usually dont which is making me think but i just cant shake the feeling that the smoking has had something to do with the bump.
Julia thankyou for the support. you both sound so comfortable with talking about it with me (a total stranger) and i thankyou for this. Looking at my ear will be of no use, i have had about 8 operations on it for the past 13 years of my life. i guess im just a walking bombshell.
I am pretty sure that my swollen torn lip/inside of my cheek is because i bit it, mutiple times. the things i was on were basically the cause of that.
i will be sure to inform you on how it goes, is 2 weeks too long to wait you think to have it checked? because i have an ENT appointment on the 11th of october but i could contact my GP if you think i should sooner
