    Concerned about abnormal growth in oral cavity

    Hello! I've noticed some strange growth at the base of my tongue and the back of my throat that looks dangerously close to some examples of early stage throat cancer I've seen in my Health Science textbook and on some diagnostic archives online. I can't contact my healthcare provider until next week, and would really appreciate some help!
    Is there a throat and mouth specialist or possibly an oncologist here that I could take a look?
    Thanks!
