Sore in my mouth causing lip and tooth numbness

About a week ago I developed an ulcer inside my lower lip btw the gum and fleshy part holding my lip to my gum. About 4 days ago I noticed that my tooth was going numb and now my lip on the right side is also feeling numb. I have noticed I am clenching my teeth together at times during the day...I am afraid of cancer! I don t and have not smoked or dipped and no family history of oral cancer . What is this? My dentist saw it ystrday and was concerned bt is waiting to see what happens over the next 2 wks.

Dentist Dr. E. Bharathikannan's  Response
cancer will not occur all of a sudden , since you arent a smoker and doesnt use tobacco dipps too.. as you have already consuted a dentist be cool, dont worry.. have healthy vitamin rich diet, take curd, consume more fruits, vegetables. can take b-complex capsule. i hope there will be nothing to worry , be sure you go for the checkup after 2 weeks as per your dentist's recall. he will definitely take care and ease you to normal. have a healthy smile.
