Getting ear pain, patch on mucous. Is ear pain an indication for Oral cancer? What should i do?

Dear Doctor, I am getting ear pain for 5 minutes to 10 minutes, two to three times in a day. I have ground nut size patch on mucous for the last three months. I was consulted oncologist and He observed the patches said that the patches are due to mucous irritation. I was a ex-smoker. He prescribed an antioxidants and multi minerals for 6 months. I have gone through the documents available in internet and found that the ear pain is an indication for Oral cancer . Ear pain was not present when I met oncologist. Is the ear pain continuous for oral cancer OR presents for some time in a day?

Ear pain can be due to many causes. There are some neural communication in oral cavity neck region to ear. So ear pain may be associated with cancer but mainly at advanced stage. In your case it is extremely unlikely. White path may due to leucoplakia or may be due to other infection. Do not worry. Follow your doctors' advise.
