Possible mouth cancer diagnosis

Hi everyone, thanks for taking the time to read my post and what a wonderful community there is on this page 

I am 32, have 3 beautiful very young children and am prettified of my upcoming appt with the oral surgeon.. I have smoked since about 15 but have given up the afternoon I saw the dentist..

basically, I have researched every aspect of mouth/ head/ neck cancer over the past 4 days as I went to the dentist and she has noticed erythroplakia and leukoplakia on my soft palate and behind jaw bone. I’m just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and what the process/outcome was for them?
