Hi my name is Tahlia, I am 14 years of age and I am a smoker.
I have recently about 4 or 5 months ago (Unsure when I actually got it) I realised I have a lump on the left side of my tongue, about the size of a pea that is about an inch away from the tip of my tongue (It’s not noticeable but you can’t really feel it from the top only the bottom of my tongue). I thought it was just a lump from me bitting my tongue or something, so I didn’t tell my mum about it. It was only today I realised it’s still there as I was looking at my tongue because I’m getting it pierced next year, so I told my mum. I don’t think it has gotten any bigger or smaller, I am really worried, I have been searching about it on Google and I can’t sleep as I am scared I might have tongue cancer. My mum is taking me to the doctors in a day or two but I am unsure if I should believe what the doctor says, any advice?
