Hello I am a newbie and rather scared.
I visited my dentist after I discovered some white patches on the side of my tongue which after 2 weeks had not gone away - Boots told me it was oral thrush and to use a cream. It was not.
My dentist referred me to Dental Hospital which after a 2 week wait I attended and was told it looks nohing serious and looks like TMD, from me chewing my tongue and gum sides etc (I have a mouth tray)... but to be on safe side they would arrange biosy
2 weeks later I had the biopsy.. One from lateral tongue side, the other where I had been biting at the back and it had formed a scar white patch. 6 stitches and a sore mouth. Sure when I went for the biopsy the tongue patch had almost gone invisible but yet the surgeon insisted on taking the biopsy
They said results in 4-6 weeks...
Im booked to go back 1st Aug which will be 5 weeks after the biopsy.
Whats the usual wait for news? 6 weeks?
I am worried reading all these stiries of mouth cancer and I am only 42!
