ENT Specialist 's  Response

Why do you smoke when you are so worried about getting a cancer? You have visited an ENT specialist, a Neurologist and a Dentist; none of them have detected any cancer; hence cancer should be highly unlikely. Moreover, your Dentist seems to be suggesting that your ear pain could be due to TMJ arthritis; which could be true. In that case eat soft foods and do not chew on that side for couple of weeks. Nevertheless, you need to quit smoking; otherwise the cancer can catch up soon in any smoker and you may not be an exception.
