Thank you for your question. I'll do my best to answer it for you.As a dentist specialized in prosthodontics, I had some cases of oral cancer,but they are not often and most of the oral sores ,lumps, or ulcer have other etiological factor like bacterial fungal or viral causes. diagnostic plan based on ulcer or sore appearance and location, blood test for the microbial agents or a biopsy of the ulcer may be needed to confirm the cause.Biopsy clearly shows the consistency of tissue and helped us to make correct treatment plan.Oral cancer can be life threatening if not diagnosed and treated as soon as possible or in early stage of oral cancer so you most ask your oral pathologist or dentist for the reason of sore. The oral cancer's ulcer has irregular borders, It is one of the main important sign of oral cancer and also oral cancer have other symptoms like chewing problem, painful sores, pain with swallowing, pain and speech difficulties , swallowing difficulty, and one of the main sign is swollen lymph nodes in neck, and weight loss. nowadays diagnostic method easily define it and you should not be worried ,I think it is more likely to oral soft tissue mechanical damage and it will heal soon but you should visit an oral pathologist for other diagnostic test as biopsy for piece of mind and in some cases X-ray and CT scans may be helpful too.If you have any more questions, I am happy to help as much as possible so feel free to ask.
I had different patient with the oral canser
most of the time ulcer with irregular borders wich is painfull
and almost all patients have difficulty with the swallowing and speeech
yes all the time
all my cases
and more important is the palpation of lymph nodes of neck
are there significant sing? painful or swelling, I don't think so
Most of the time it is a mechanical caused injury
and Bacterial make me sure that it is not fungal or microbial one
did they do viral test too?
so it is quite clear, I think 98% it should be mild soft tissue injury
if it last for more than 10 days and get worse you should be ask for biopsy of sore
but if you are too worry and it disturb you you can do it now and make sure that it is not dangerous and make piece of mind
No ,I think just avoid too much salt and pepper for 2 weeks, use more fruit and avoid acidic food or drink
it can help in safer mode
As a prosthodontics, I have many patient with the oral mucousal or soft tissue injury
and most of the time it heals in 2 weeks
If you use shellfish or other seafood It can helps the healing process because of B12 and I recommend it to some of my patients.
If you have any more questions, I am happy to help as much as possible so feel free to ask.
