Are there any visible lesions in the mouth? If so, please provide a clear photograph of the lesion(s). Also, indicate if there are any other lesions elsewhere on your body, or whether there are other constitutional symptoms. This will allow me to provide a more accurate and relevant response...

I have no lesions in my mouth or anywhere else. I have what looks like a cankor sore below my bottom front teeth. I can push it with my finger and it moves a little. It is sore and sometimes painful. Now my entire mouth is uncomfortable. I have had this for 2 months. My Dentist looked at it and sent me to dental specialist, who sent me to my primary care doctor, who has referred me to an ENT. Until then ---- I'm miserable. What do you think?

Please provide a photograph showing "what looks like a cankor sore below (your) bottom front teeth". Please also include any information you may have been given by your dental specialist, primary care doctor, and ENT.

I do not have the ability to send a photograph. Description: Small, White, Circular Mark. I have not been given any information from any doctor. I sense that I am not going to obtain any information from this request. My best bet is to drop this and wait until I can get in to see an ENT. Thanks anyway.
