I am new to this forum so not sure if I’m posting correctly. I had stage one tongue cancer removed June 2017. Since healing I’ve had a sore area under tongue on floor of mout. Surgeon said caused by scar tissue. I live in Florida in winter and my oral surgeon here said there are white spots and wants to biopsy. I’m dreading doing that as I almost don’t want to know. The thought of more surgery makes me want to live in the dark. There is no lump or open sore. It is in the area where the cord from floor of mouth attaches to tongue. Concerned and confused

Hello! Girl I'd say everyone on this page, once we're on this side of treatment, fears the R word above all so I understand!! We lived all through the C and forevermore fear recurrence.

Hopefully you just have some leukoplakia and nothing major. It's good your getting it looked at NOW rather than LATER. You sure don't want it to be something major and it grew larger out of fear of just seeing what it is!!

Good luck!!!
