Mass on tongue

Hi, I'm 26 years old and started having jaw pain about 3 weeks ago. Two weeks later ended up in the dentist with a wisdom tooth infection. Swollen node on left side. He put me on antibiotics and tge day after i got extremely sore throat and white stuff on tonsils. Went to hospital and was told there's a mass on my tongue that looks abnormal. It suddenly appeared they are sending me to an ent to have it biopsied for cancer. I'm terrified i just need some words of wisdom. Anything i have 3 babies and scared to death.
