Dark spot on lip. Should I see an oral surgeon?

Hi there. I brought my daughter to see her Dr about a dark spot on the lip that she s had for 7 months. It hasn t got any bigger but it s not going away either. He told me it wasn t anything to worry about but when I brought her to her dentist app today her hygenist almost seemed a little worried and said that they may refer her to an oral surgeon the next time she comes in if it s still there. Should I make an app for her now to see an oral surgeon? What could it be?

In your question you haven't mentioned the age of your daughter as these spots disappear by them self in growing age( 10-16).Normally they are of not major concern.These spots are basically melanin pigments deposited in skin of lip.Wait for next 6-8 months and notice any change, if there and then see a skin specialist rather than an oral surgeon.
