I have a sore throat and I can find a thin white opaque layer at the back of my throat. My inner cheek has a boil and it doesn't pain much, I and scared as I checked my symptoms over Google which showed up saying oral cancer but I don't smoke or do alcohol consumptions. Is it because of the cold climate or bad breath?
