Thanks for your reply
I got it.
I am an ENT and Head & Neck surgeon and wants to help you.
The location you have mentioned is the site for the salivary gland ducts and the swelling you are having is a stone in the submandibular duct. This is not a cancer and not even pre cancer.
You need to see ENT doctor for this and he will remove this surgically.
This is not something to get stressed.
I hope this helps you.

soo its 100percent not cancer yeah ? and does it have to be removed because i cant feel it or anything, so its on the gum left hand side and below the teeth but far enough down i have to move me tonge down to feel it, so not cancer/
Expert:  Dr. Hasan replied 5 years ago.
Thanks for your input.
Yes i am sure its not cancer.
In head and neck cancers are fast growing and in years it should have reached to a big size.
I deal with oral cancers myself and i assure you that this is not presentation of cancer.
I hope this helps you.

its not that small though but i wouldnt say its big but if it was cancer i would of noticed it grow alot wouldnt i and iv also read hard stone lumps down there have nothing to do with cancer?
Expert:  Dr. Hasan replied 5 years ago.
you are right and moreover if it was cancer it would have drained by now into your neck nodes to cause multiple neck swellings.
So i donot even suspect cancer with what you have told me.
I hope this helps you.
