On the 13th of march they will do a biopsy and I wanted to see what this might be. I am scared cause my mom had stage 4 oral cancer at 47 and my sister had stage 1 oral cancer at 37, I am a female age 28

Oral cavity cancer can be related to chewing tobacco , so this addiction history is very important. Multiple oral cavity lesion not always signify cancer, there are other benign causes and infections also. As your doctor has suggested a biopsy there may be some suspicion. Anyway, nothing to be worried right now, every disease has treatment. Follow your doctors advise.
