I am freaking out again, someone help me (God I miss chat)
Ouch..just in front of the palatoglossal arch (the thing with the dangly uvula on it) on both the left and right side about half way between the roof of my mouth and the tongue, I have two small (size of a pencil eraser, roundish) flat yellow/pink areas, one on each side of my mouth nearly identical locations. I have had these for years and have seen no changes. I should also mention I had these when I got my oral cancer screening 2 years ago, and the dentist said I was negative (fine). I am not sure how far back in the mouth the dentists even checks or if this is not part of the screening process.
I do not have tonsils and as far as I know those occur behind this arch anyway. Needless to say I am concerned as heck about Cancer and freaking out. I was unable to google much of anything regarding this because every return came back as "Cancer something" and I was forced to stop.
Does anyone know if glands, ducts, etc are found in this area? what little I found on major saliva glands indicated they did not occur there or I misunderstood and minor saliva glands were listed as occurring all over which is a bit to vague for a hypochondriac. The reality is, I can not afford to see a dentist again and i'm looking for some peace of mind/info here.
Please help, two days in a row now, I have been unable to sleep anxiety etc.
