I have a stone in my saliva gland that has been there since I was 17, I am now 58, it has bothered me on and off all these years but now the swelling and pain is not going away. I went to the ER and they did a CT scan and said I need to go see an ENT soon to have the stone removed, the dr. said the stone is big about an inch. put me on IV pain meds and antibiotics for about 2 hours and sent me home with same scripts and a referral to an ENT. What I am wondering is it possible for a stone to turn into cancer after all these years. I have pain in my jaw, neck, ear, tongue and my check is numb.
