Wait: The cold will resolve in 7-10 days. If tongue changes persist see ENT doc for evaluation. Cancer unlikely.

See doctor: Your ailments warrant an examination by a physician BUT rest assured that nobody should be able to make a primary diagnosis of cancer based on the symptoms you have provided.
