I have a leukoplakia patch on my left inner cheek

I have a leukoplakia patch on my left inner cheek and periodically feel pressure at the back of my left jaw or around my left eye. My throat was feeling irritated and had a small white patch of plaque in between my tonsils over the weekend but is feeling better now and no plaque is present. My left tonsil is swollen but not causing any discomfort but I have a metallic taste in my mouth and I feel like my breath isn't fresh after brushing. A rapid strep test came back negative today and am meeting with an ENT on Wednesday but I'd like to get an idea on what I have going on. I also keep smelling the same smell, almost like a damp basement or wet grass. Any ideas?
