Welcome to Just Answer it is my pleasure to help you
do you feel any lumps in your mouth?
any masses in head neck or oral cavity?
any Unexplained numbness, loss of feeling, or pain tenderness in any area of the face, mouth, or nec
any Difficulty chewing or swallowing, speaking, or moving the jaw or tongue
any unintentional weight loss?
i see your point why you have anxiety knowing the realation between chewing tobacco and mouth cancer
what i would recommend i going to the dentist and taking a biopsy so you can feel better that would be the only way to confirm that you dont have oral cancer
even though with no lumbs,swelling weight loss difficulty in chewing or lymph node appearence it is unlikley to have oral cancer
The development of velvety white, red, or speckled (white and red) patches in the mouth.
rough spots/crusts/or eroded areas on the lips, gums, or other areas inside the mouth.
can be a symptom of oral cancer yes but just one tiny red dot is most probably not
as i said what we call brush biopsy done by the dentist will confirm that most probably there is no cancer
if physical exam does not look suspecious then you should not worry
however if a mass develop or the spot becomes bigger you should reevaluate immediately with your GP
I wouldnt worry about it that much just monitoring it for now should be ok
we can not assume that you have cancer just because of red spot if all work up is negative and physical exam is negative as i said the last thing is doing a biopsy to confirm it
you are most welcome
