I have a white lump of skin that's turned up on the inside of my left cheek right at the back. It has a dull achy toothache pain so I'm taking painkillers. I've had it for just over 2 weeks now, the left side of the roof of my mouth feels swollen, left side of my glands are sore to touch and also behind my ear is sore. I'm booking an apt but wanna see what you guys think first.

I'm a somewhat healthy 27yo female, non smoker and drink around once a month.

Most likely a lichen planus, an autoimmune disease that typically stays around for about 5 years. Could also be a leukoplakia. Both should be checked because either can be pre-cancerous. I have lichen planus for ten years now and recently, it flared up worse than ever. Good news is that something like only 1 to 4% of these ever become cancerous. Get it checked for your own piece of mind though. Good luck with it.
