    does this look like mouth cancer?
    An_224534 posted:

    its a pointy/boney bump on the floor of my mouth, its only on 1 side

    i googled it and found it might just be a "tori" or "exostosis"

    but then i read this...

    "Cancers called osteomas and sarcomas can form cause unusual bone growth in the mouth. In virtually all cases, these growths lack symmetry, growing on just one side of the mouth or notably large on one side than the other."

    ive been a smoker for 5 years and i quit after i saw this. so my question is could this be cancer? what should i do? :(

    I have this same problem. But mine is located on the corner of the Jaw, under the left ear.....
    It freaks me out cuz I have had a problem with a fibroid cyst in the left breast back in 2001. I had that removed.
    Now along with the Jaw defect. I have something that the description, well it matches the definition of a Chest Wall Tumor. I have no clue what it is & how would I get it fixed when I don't have Ins. ?
