Mouth sores, bad pain in jaws. Do i have oral or throat cancer?

I dipped skin and off for 8 months, I only used 10 tins in that time. But I quit two months ago and soon after I started to have mouth pain. Now I have a few mouth sores and both sides of my jaw hurt very badly. I don t know if I have oral or throat cancer and I am very worried. I am only 15 and I have been to the dentist and he didn t see anything. Also I went to the doctor and she said it was just a viral infection but that was about a month and a half ago. Do you know what this might be???

Cancers are most often painless to start with. Multiple sore and very painful lesion goes more in favor of infective origin. You should maintain proper oral hygiene. In case of any doubt culture sensitivity from local ulcer can be tried. Viral etiology is common and most of the time they are self resolving. Consult an ENT specialist.
