Gray freckles on tongue. Done tongue biopsy. What is it? Cancer?

I had a tongue biopsy yesterday. On the right side of my tongue, I had a grayish spot with little freckles around it. A week later the left side had some discoloration as well. I m scared and can t sleep much waiting on the pathology report to come back. Since yesterday, the swelling went down, I m able to speak and my tongue has white stuff on it and theres lots of bruising . I m afraid it might be cancer.

Hi there,
I understand your anxiety and concern, but nothing short of biopsy report can conclusively tell if it is a cancer or not. I'm happy that you got biopsy done and did the right thing. Now we just wait for the report and in the mean time try to develop a healthy lifestyle, do some light exercise or try walking for 1 mile or so evening or morning. Improve your diet. Take care
