42 yr old Male, 3 months ago began with painful swollen tongue, normal appearance. Took predizone reduced swelling minumally and returned 1 week later. Saw 2 ENT's, had x-rays and MRI. MRI indicated abnormal growths of rear of tongue. Had 6 biopsies on tongue all reported to be benign. Taking another round of Prendizone reduced swelling minumally, still swollen and painful. I suffer from chronic sinus issues. (infections, swollen glands, post nasal) Yet allergy tests indiacte I'm not allergic to anything. I get occasional cold sores and sometimes sores in my nose. Never smoked anything whole life, no chew etc. The only thing the doctors have not done is a full blood work up. Please advise. I can't find ANYONE who has a CLUE to what this could be. I was thinking a cancer in the blood and that is why it didn't show in biopsies. Please, please help or point me in the right direction. I live 15 miles from Boston, MA :eek:
