Reaccuring parotid tumor

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi my name is Ashley, I'm 26 years old. 1 year ago I found a lump underneath my left ear (parotid gland) ended up being benign. Now 6 months after surgery i have another mass, but on the right side and this time infront of the ear. It is painful akd radiates pain into my jaw/temple. I had a CT SCAN done a couple weeks back and confirmed it was small. But I'm worried this is serious, I have been having neck pain noe and my voice has become raspy. Im only 26 and I'm worried this could be cancerous. Any response is greatly appreciated. Im a mother of two and health wise I do not feel great the last year. Thank you for any words of advice.

    Hi Ashley

    Thank you for kind words. I was wondering when you first diagnosed with the tumor did you have any other symptoms such as a sore throat. The reason I'm asking is because when I look up the symptoms it says sore throat is an indication of cancer

      The first tumor I found out in February of last year and this one I found out just a few weeks back. And did have ulcers in the back of my throat. My doctor said it was probably from stress. The ulcers have gone but now I'm stuck with thus scratchy sore throat where my voice goes in and out. Im not sure if it correlates to be honest. So far my surgeon has told me to just hold off till I absolutely can't (because I do have pain with this tumor) being that it's deep lobe. I am considering a new doctor because I feel I need a second opinion.
