My husband has just come back from the dentist and has been told he has white patches on the inside of his cheeks. He is now worried that he has oral cancer, but the dentist has asked him to come back in two weeks before he sends him to a specialist. Should we be worrying and if it could be cancer shouldn't he be seeing someone sooner. Any help wold be greatly appreciated.
