I'm currently 19 years old, studying abroad, and it is 4 AM. I've been feeling an irritation on the right corner of my soft palate all day. On a whim, I looked up some possible causes, and the only image that's similar to my problem is a 'before' image for palatal cancer. It's almost exactly the same. It's a small red patch of mild soreness with a smaller, slightly paler raised dot on it.
Here's a series of images - in the last image, my problem is on the left-hand side. I may be having a panic attack and there's no way I can sleep tonight. Can someone please tell me that this might have a cause other than cancer? I'll be going to a screening place tomorrow if the problem persists in the morning, but I don't know how pronounced the swelling is and I don't know how to judge lymph nodes... basically, I'm terrified. I don't do any particularly carcinogenic things, but I also read that young, healthy men have recently been getting this sort of cancer in Germany and I'm in Prague... I'm at a loss for words.
