Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and am ready to help.
it is very very rare for oral cancers to cause numbness in the mouth and throat.
if you have numbness in the mouth and throat, lesions in the skull base need to be looked for with a skull base MRI scan
My doctor told me that anxiety is the cause of numbness but i'm still worried. would there be other symptoms with lesions
anxiety can also cause some occasional on and off numbness of the mouth
is your numbness all the time or on and off?
It is numb most of the time
Are lesions cancerous and fatal?
I am 5 months pregnant would ihave more symptoms if it were lesions?
are you there?
if you mouth numbness symptoms are worse when your anxiety is worse, then it is your anxiety which are causing your symptoms
Would brain lesions or a tumor would there be more symptoms? Would it get worse?
a brain tumor would be causing much more symptoms
