Hi doctor, can I get an opinion on this spot in my mouth. Just opened and looked, don't think it's been there long but just want to make sure it looks ok. No symptoms associated with it. First picture has the spot circled.

Hi, there! Thank you for attaching those great photos. The area looks like a variation of normal anatomy and nothing to be concerned about. The floor of the mouth contains blood vessels and salivary glands and ducts. All of these structures can change in size at different times.

Does that make sense?

I'm glad the photos were good, it's hard getting photos of your mouth. That red is spot is normal? No trauma or anything needed?
Dentist: Lara Coseo, Dentist (DDS or equivalent) replied 19 days ago

It looks normal. It could be a minor inflammation if you accidentally hit that area some food or a toothbrush. Since the skin is not broken and you have no tenderness, there is no cause for concern.

What other questions can I answer for you?

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

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!!
