hey its definitely very sad that u r very disturbed .actually gum problems r not always serious.In majority of swelling of gums cases it can be controlled by just scaling done in a dental clinic unless the patient has some systemic diseases.i cant give u opinion regarding throat & ear as this can be best answered by an ENT SURGEON.As far as ur worry regarding cancer is concerned , my advice is just dont panic.what u r supposed to do is ,u just have to visit a hospital.there are so many diseases & cancer is just one of just relax & consult a good doctor.cancer is confirmed by so many tests .if doctors have any doubt they can advise BIOPSY etc.
