Possible oral cancer?

Posted , 4 users are following.

so im 23 years old, i am a smoker too (around 7 a day for the past 5 years or so), but yesterday i got this swelling in my gum, no big deal, i was eating some pringles which have made my gums swell before cause of the sharp edges... but then i take a look and my gum looks almost bruised, really dark, lots of swelling... but ive taken a look today and its still really dark and now i can see white patches which look similar to leukoplakia. i cant find anything on the internet and cant afford a dentist appointment at the moment, my next one is on the 4th July but im starting to get incredibly anxious...image
