Brief Answer: Lymphoepithelial cyst Detailed Answer: Hello and thanks for complete details. After carefully evaluating the given history it appears that the lesion could be Lymphoepithelial cyst or a granular cell tumour. Now to confirm the diagnosis a simple biopsy is required,for which you can approach an oral pathologist. This biopsy test will not only confirm the diagnosis but, also confirm whether the lesion is benign or malignant. Therefore in my view please go for a biopsy test. For further doubts please let me know. Thanks. Take care.
