What’s the matter? CAT-SCAN got your tongue?

The tiny little blister on the top of my tongue wasn’t going away. For years I smoked a pack of cigarettes a day with shots of grey goose in between, often polishing off an entire liter per day. After about a week of having this blister, I went to an ENT doctor to get a biopsy. As expected, it was cancer, and I was immediately scheduled for a glossectomy to remove the growth as soon as possible.
