I submit for an appointment with Jacksonville mayo clinic. My dentist called me today and got me a ENT appointment tomorrow at 1:30pm. I am praying that this doctor is companionable with knowledge.  I just to get answers with proof. 

That's great!  Waiting is not fun.  I hope you get answers.

What kind of questions should I ask the doctor?

I had thyroid cancer, not oral cancer but I do know Mayo & MD Anderson on tops in medicine. :))

You most likely want to find out how you will begin to determine what the mass is (by biopsy?) and how soon (now?). 

But specifics to oral cancer, I do not know.

Good luck!

If you go to the mayo, they will leave no stone unturned. They answered questions we didn't know we had. If you go to the mayo, bring something to do (iPad, kindle etc) and snacks. We had two days of back to back appointments with not enough time between them to stand in line and eat. One thing I liked us they pull everything up on the screen and SHOW you the results.

The ENT said it is not a mass. Its a paranasal sinus has a retention cyst in the floor of the left maxillary antrum. I don't know anthing about cyst. I see the doctor again jan 2. He gave me of predizon, spasm meds and antibiotics.  I have spasms on left side of face. No testing or biopsy were done.

That is GREAT GREAT news. Not mass. I actually have a friend who had a son (about 12) that had something similar. They ended up doing surgery to remove it as it would go away with treatment but came back. I remember that the doctor told her that it was more uncommon with him because of his age. I didn't think of a cyst. This is great news. Thank heaven. You must have taken a big sigh...I know I would have.

Its a relief.  I do appreciate support.  Long wait for an answer was stressful but, the answer is wonderful news.
