Hello -

You don't have mouth cancer.

Tenderness in a lymph node under your chin could mean that you have a bit of an infection, or a cold. Bad breath could come from a number of different things including poor mouth hygiene, but would not be related to a mouth cancer.

If you had a growth inside your mouth, and were a heavy smoker and user of chew tobacco, and were in your 50s or older, then there would be a concern for mouth cancer. But you are young, and presumably have no growths in your mouth, so try not to worry too much.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
