Question! Question! Question!

Let me tell you about a client that we had that went for a routine visit to his dentist. During that visit he told the dentist he was concerned about a small growth that he had in his upper jaw. The dentist looked at it, decided to remove it, decided it was benign and the patient/ the client had nothing to worry about. A couple months later, that growth returned and our client was concerned that it might be cancer. He told the dentist that. The dentist basically said, “Don’t worry about it. We’ll remove it again. It’ll be okay.” Long story short, a couple more visits later the growth returned, and it was finally biopsied and determined to be cancer, Stage 4 mouth cancer. The moral of the story is, if you are concerned about something that is going on with you, your health, your body, be proactive. Tell your dentist, tell your doctor, to tell your provider that you’re concerned that something just does not feel right. Perhaps you will encourage your doctor to take that extra step that extra step they can save your life or at least prevent a serious injury.
