Dr Alan didn’t strike me as a very knowledge doctor. And he try to look for a tumor behind my tonge by hand. When I make movement showing completely discomfort and signs of throwing up he did not let go mytonge. So I have a huge lump under my tonge he say is a small emathoma and it will go away in 2 days . But was more like a big grape lump.. After we finish he explain to a lady what is the results and told her to translate to my mom . Which she did extremely wrong. The lady say that the lump the he provoque was what they found in my MRI and it will go away on his own, that’s why I have a lot of saliva ( which the dr never mention) and of course my mom say to me . How you didn’t notice the lump under your tonge for so long . She should say that they found a tumor in my MRI under my tonge that they need to study touch, reach to be able to determine the results. And the lump was a course of the test. So horrible explanation and if I didn’t understand him. I will just go home happy... so please pick another Dr.
