Hi I need some advice, I have felt this once before but I believe it fell off and I swollowed it. But 3 weeks ago I was eating and I felt my tongue at the very back and there was a flap of my tongue hanging off it's still there, it feels like food is getting stuck. I do smoke moreso now cause of how bloody stressed I am. But everything I eat it feels like bits are getting stuck in it, I went to the dr, the emergency room, and the dentist the dentist said it was an enlarged gland on my tongue but I'm kinda worried it's cancerous or a tumor of some sort, it makes my tongue numb while I'm sleeping and I have a hard time pushing food to the back of my throat can anyone give me an answer the drs look at me like I'm nuts but I keep telling everyone that it's causing food to sit in this pocket, I've had an endoscopy and the surgeon said my tongue seemed normal but nothing about this feels normal I saw my epiglottis from the pics he took of my throat and that's not it.. please can anyone tell me what it might be, and how to fix it, it's caused a mass amount of anxiety and depression I can't enjoy food without it feeling stuck in my tongue

Hello. I had a partial glossectomy over 6 years ago. It started off with a small canker sore and when food got lodged in the sore it really set of extreme pain in my tongue,then to my ear. In some occasions it went from my ear around the back of my head then to my eye which at one time while standing in line in the pharmacy buckled my right leg. This was after my initial doctor's visit. I knew something was missed. My doctor never even brought up it was cancer at my first visit. I had to wait for 11 days for my next appointment. While waiting for this appointment I was continuing to work and this is where it got very real. I was driving a bunch of Summer Surf camp kids down the California Coast and I had to sneeze! I sneezed while driving and the pressure from the sneeze ripped my tongue open an inch which was the worst pain I have ever felt. I would get a biopsy and/or a second opinion.
