I am a 32 yr old female who has smoked on and off since I was 17. I have been waking up thirsty for weeks now and yesterday noticed a visible lump in my throat which is slightly sore when pressed. I have looked inside my mouth and seen a red patch at the back of my mouth.
I have looked on the internet and these symptoms, in particular the red patch in the mouth, seem to be early signs of cancer. Does this sound right?
I will be booking an emergency appointment at the doctors tomorrow but am obviously really worried.
Any comments would be appreciated.
