Customer Question

A year ago I had a biopsy done on the roof of my mouth for a brown spot. It came back negative for cancer. The biopsy site looks white. It may have always looked this way but I noticed it today. Should I be worried?

Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
you shouldn't be worried.
the biopsy was negative for cancer.
it is not cancer.
most likely it was a melanin pigment collection causing the brown spot on the roof of the mouth.
the white is from the biospy and isn't bad.
you should not be worried
let me know if you have questions.
