Stop smoking, see GP: Cancer of the mouth or throat is increased by cigarette smoking, however the incidence is rare in young adults, increasing with age. More common causes of pain is infection such as streptococcal sore throat which can cause ear pain. Treatment for this is to complete a course of antibiotics prescribed by your GP. Your GP is a good first port of call to diagnose and treat. ...Read more

I was wondering if I should see my doctor? I have discomfort under my left rib, little red pin sized dots, some in mouth, very tired. Cancer?

I was wondering if I should see my doctor? I have discomfort under my left rib, little red pin sized dots, some in mouth, very tired. Cancer?

See a DOCTOR: Not necessarily cancer, but could be any number of things. Without having any other information (and this is very little) my initial thought is to be concerned about your spleen (underneath your left rib cage) and your platelets (could cause little red dots called "petechiae"). An enlarged spleen and low platelets could be a sign of lymphoma, autoimmune diseases, itp, infection or others. ...Read more

Concerned about 1mm sore beside eyebrow that hasn't healed over a month. No change in size no scab. Looks like red dot. Can this be skin cancer?

Concerned about 1mm sore beside eyebrow that hasn't healed over a month. No change in size no scab. Looks like red dot. Can this be skin cancer?

Not likely: A 1mm lesion is likely benign and represents either a blood blister, hemangioma or focal inflammatory/vascular extravasation from bug bite. Is it raised? Does it itch? It is very unlikely that a pinpoint red 1mm macule is cancerous. If you are worried, a visit to the dermatologist will give you the reassurance you need. ...Read more

Tonsil lesions: You might have a viral infection on top of the bacterial one. I suppose you have been on antibiotics for the tonsil infection.
