Recent Hard Palate questions

I have several questions. 1. At the very front of my mouth

I have several questions.1. At the very front of my mouth my top gums looks like they have something on top of them. It looks white in color with a few bumps. I do brush my gums when I brush my teeth. However, this does not want to come off. My gums never hurt and I am not experiencing any discomfort. This is very concerning to me as I try and take good care of my teeth but have truthfully not been able to go to the dentist in a couple of years due to financial reasons. I have attached a couple different pictures. One of which I have circled the area of concern. What is this and is it normal? Anything to be concerned about?2. I have a bright white patch on the soft tissue right underneath my wisdom teeth on the bottom that goes down beside of my tongue on both sides. It doesn't hurt at all. I just noticed it. I have attached pictures. Is this normal? I circled the area of concern. I'm just concerned with cancer in this area.3. My hard palate looks a little white. Is this anything to be concerned about? I have attached a picture.4. The gum color under my bottom teeth is darker than the top. Is that okay? I have circled the area that I'm talking about.Lastly, if wisdom teeth are not giving a person any trouble do dentist still recommend that they be taken out?I have a dentist appointment coming up but not for a few weeks. However, in the meantime this is concerning. Any assistance you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, my name is ***** *****, and my issue is regarding my hard palate. It is white, and there are white patches in the center.JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: I noticed it 5 months ago and I had a biopsy done then. The biopsy said it was hyperkeratosis, but then another doctor told me it is oral lichen planus. So now I don't know what to do, or if the biopsy results could have not been read properly. I have a picture of my palate as well.JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dentists generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).
