Hello, I would like to help you with your question concerning a white spot on the roof of your mouth near the back. You are correct, if it is not painful then it is probably not an ulcer. Sometimes there can be a gland or benign growth on the roof of the mouth that is considered insignificant because it does not indicate any pathology. If you could post a photo, I would be happy to take a look at it. Dr. David
OK. First you need to take a few pictures and then upload them to your computer. Then you can click on the symbol shown above the chat box that looks like a paperclip. You will then have the opportunity to browse for the images and upload them to the chat room.
oh yes sorry i was using my phone that had no paper clip here is a picture
not sure if it has worked will try again
im browsing thru and find the picture but the ok tab won't work to upload the picture
got it at last i hope this is ok
Also i should add i was very stupid about a month ago and had unprotected sex including oral, i dunno if this could be a symptom of any std i have no other signs, i got tested a few weeks after but i no that this was probably to soon to get a proper result. Herpes spots would hurt wouldn't they? I also read that Syphlis can leave a spot that does not hurt but all the pictures i have seen don't look like my spot.
Thank you for the photo! It looks like a small bony growth from the hard palate. If it just feels like a painless lump when you run your tongue over it, then this is the most likely possibility. You can keep an eye on it if you like, but I imagine that it will not change much over time. It does not look like an STD at all. Herpes would definitely have a sensation to it, and it would appear on the lips as a blister filled with yellow fluid. A spot from syphilis will look much different than this. If you are not having any other symptoms, then I think that you have nothing to be concerned about.
No worries. It was a pleasure chatting with you. I'm sure that all of your tests will come back negative. I wish you the best!
