Thanks for using the HCM. I am happy to address your questions, predisposing factors for a plaque
on tongue could be tobacco use, alcohol consumption, chronic irritantse.g., the sharp edges of teeth. some fungal infections. A biopsy
should be done to know wheather its apremalignant condition, and the lesion surgically excised if pre-cancerous changes or cancer is detected.Taking beta-carotene
orally seems to induce remission in patients with oral leukoplakia
. and avoid above mwntioned predisposing factors. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....
