thank you. I've attached the red dot in middle is almost like a hole and it bleeds a lot occassionaly
Dentist: Dr Matthew Kremser, Dentist (DDS or equivalent) replied 3 years ago
Not the best photo but I will say that any visible lesion on your tongue that bleeds easily should definitely be seen by a dentist. Most lesions turn out to be nothing serious, so please don't panic, but it can be serious so don't delay. Smoking, alcohol are risk factors for oral cancer, but don't have to be present for issues to arise. Again, most likely harmless, but you need this checked and possibly biopsied.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
