    What did the ent Dr say about the extra tissue, not a polyp? Obviously you won't know for sure until the results but hopefully it will be all ent related and I'd have thought they would have contacted you urgently if there was anything serious? I'd keep pushing for the results as I can imagine how stressful it is waiting. Please let me know if you hear anything x

    So sorry to hear this.    Don't stress so much and worry will only make it worse. I get terrible face and neck pain and ear pain and dr never know what iit is one will say sinus and another will say tmj. But they say might be both at same time. I get frustrated cause I have no sinus symptoms. I will keep you in my prayers.

      Thank you for your kind reply. Had mri yesterday now just need to wait for results. I did ring ent doctor as I was so worried it was making me ill. He kind of assured me that he didn't think it was cancer but more of some kind of infection. I suffer with anxiety so bad that I will still worry until I know for sure.
