SEE SPECIALIST: I know you are scared but you really need to see a specialist a lot of these cancer treatable even sometime without surgery
if you are a smoker that will increase your chance of cancer
still go and see a specialist in florida you might be eligible for state insurance if you have cancer
let hope for the best and plan for the worst do not worry about money now your health is more important.

See the ENT asap: So you do not have to worry as long. If it is negative you can relax. If it is positive then you can get it taken care of before it gets worse.
