I have a spot under my tongue and it's been there three

Customer Question

hey, I have a white spot under my tongue and it's been there three months. it didn't initially hurt but now does. is it possible it's something other than cancer.
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: the pain has been there for about a month now. I actually have been referred for a biopsy but am trying to calm my mind! :)
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so the dentist can help you best.
Customer: oh I had a dentist look at it but he didn't give me much information. just monitored it for two weeks and then referred for a biopsy to an oral surgeon.
