Need help from people who know something about oral cancer
« on: December 26, 2013, 08:04:19 PM »
Ok so I'm really freaking out right now. Tonight I found a strip--all along my top gum--of these tiny white bumps. My gums feel "rougher" in this spot. The only thing I can find is that it's leokoplakia and that freaks me out. I used mouthwash on it and it burned like hell but other than that it doesn't hurt. I've been using my parents whitening toothpaste when normally I use an organic brand but I've only used it three or four times. I also have a right jugliogastric node for 3 years and a slightly swollen tonsil same side. I've been sick the last few days with sinus stuff I don't know of that's related. Help me. Any answers out there?

well you should probably see a dentist. But that is also a well known side effect of whitening treatments. Since you've been using whitening agents, that's likely the cause. Especially if you're allergic to something in it. But even if not it can cause that problem.

It's a well known side effect? I mean it makes sense but I can't find anyone else online who seems to have it. Anyone else experience this? Have you experienced it? Thank you btw for your response

My daughter gets the same thing you are talking about when she uses certain toothpastes. She can only use organic and Pro enamel now and the white sores went away. It's the sodium laurel sulphate that caused hers. Be careful of mouthwash too. Lots have sls in it which can make the sores worse.

So unfortunately, he didn't know what to make of it. He said it looks like irritation caused by trauma, etc. I told him about the whitening toothpaste he said this is a likely cause. He said the rest of my mouth looked fine.

Ok, so he also noticed my right tonsil was a bit swollen but didn't say anything about this either way. This--oral cancer--is my biggest fear to date. I have a slightly swollen 1cm jugliodigastric node and a slightly swollen right tonsil. I read somewhere this combination is almost always malignant.

Apparently the dots is normal; it's called stippling.
