Hello and thank you for your question. My name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Can you tell me please, is the small growth in your mouth bleeding or painful at all? Has it changed in size, i.e. grown recently?

No it's been the same. Doesn't hurt, no puss, no pain
Urologist: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 6 months ago

Thank you for that information. If that's the case, most likely it is benign and cancer free. That being said, you can consult with an ENT (ear nose throat) specialist and/or an oro-maxillo-facial surgeon (OMFS) to have it biopsied and studied under the microscope to definitively rule out cancer.

Can I help with any other questions for you today?

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.
