This is Dr. David

I think I helped you out in another question.

I suggested that you had TMJ inflammation on the left side which can cause left sided pain

and suggested that you use a bite guard at night time

I suggested that you ask your doctor for help to quit using oral tobacco if you were worried about cancer

but that your symptoms were not worrisome for cancer

let me know if you have other questions.
