Hi I have a hard not painful lump on the left side of my soft palate I'm a 35 yr old female and I do smoke I noticed the lump over the last week or so...I have a few bad cavities I need taken care of could it be from that or should I be concerned about cancer?
JA: I oddly love going to my dentist, it's so relaxing. I know I'm a freak but I love having a big white smile and he's the guy that keeps it looking good. Our Expert will help you relax about your teeth so you can smile too.
Customer: Should I be concerned?
JA: Anything else I can tell the Dentist before I connect you two?
Customer: Ummm no that's it
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dentist about your situation and connect you two.

Hello,Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer. No, that doesnt look like cancer at all. However, I would like to take another look at a different photo. This one is a little out of focus, and too zoomed in. Please include some of the adjacent teeth in the new photo/s as well. Regards, ***** *****
