for a week now i have been experiencing some unusual symtoms that i have never had before. the tip of my tongue feels as if it has been burnt and feels numb. i have 2 tiny white spots on the tip too which could be just ulcers but i do not know. i have the tiniest lump on the side of my neck for a few months now. it has been bigger before and has reduced size significantly but the fact that it has been there for a while concerns me (when i hold it between my fingers i can feel the lump under the skin). also today i have seen that on the left side of my mouth, on the top of the gum seems to be a red "spot"/"excess skin" that is sensitive when the tongue touches it. Also recently whenever i brush my teeth it starts to bleed a bit. i dont know if it is just a mouth infection that i may have or early signs of oral cancer. i was wondering what advise you could give me.

I've been trying to find a professional to assist you, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected, as the professionals come online at varying times. I wonder whether you would like to continue waiting for an answer…hopefully it won’t take too much longer. Please let me know, and I will continue my search. If you’d prefer not to wait, please tell me, and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!

okay thank you for the answer. yesterday i had the last cigarette of the pack that i had and after reading this don't think im going to have anymore. The only problem with this is that i live in Spain and finding a doctor here is hard for me as im not Spanish. i have been here for a year and used to live in London,UK which was much easier.
i dont know if this is linked to the symptoms too but i have had a cough for about a week and a half now and phloem flying out when i do cough. the tip of the tongue has started bleeding yesterday night but i think that was because i cut it with a sweet i was having. so im not sure about that.
Okay, i am going to look for those OTC tablets and all, in case i have any other question ill leave this open for now.
