Hello everyone,
I am new to this forum and I don't know if my question has been answered before. I searched and couldn't find anything. If it has, I apologize for asking again. I have some suspicious lesions in my mouth and my dentist said to have them biopsied if they don't go away in two weeks. I have an appointment with an ent in a few days. Thinking down the line, I started to research cancer centers. I didn't think they would take me without a referral but one that I called was able to set up an appointment for me just a few days after my ent appointment. It is a major cancer center and I would have to travel to it. My dilemna is: Should I have the ent do the biopsy or should i get the biopsy at the cancer center???
I would appreciate any help and opinions you can give me about this. I am very frightened and scared and this decision is weighing heavily on me. I just keep going round and round. I want to do this the "right" and best way. (If there is such a thing)

Thank you so much,
Veryscared

Thank you so much for your reply. It will be very helpful in making a decision. I can see that speed of diagnosis is important.

Wishing you all the best on this very arduous journey,
