I am, like i'm sure every one of you has been at some point, very scared. I am so scared of being told i've got cancer that I vomit at the thought of going to the dentist, so much so i've put it off four times now. 

For the majority of my life i've been teetotal and a non smoker. However, after some horrid life events I became an alcoholic and a smoker. I have a long history of family addicts who somehow survived to an old age so I felt stupidly like I could live like this to ignore my issues and survive. 

However, last week I noticed a lump under the skin of my right cheek. It's moveable, right in the centre, and I can run my tongue over it whilst pushing from the outside and it pings back and forth. I am terrified, to the point I feel like jumping off a bridge rather than finding out, so I just wanted to ask whether this is a typical symptom or if anyone has any knowledge? Sorry for the drama, i'm someone who is allergic to most medications and anesthetic so the future would feel very bleak. Thanks for your help.
