Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding whitish growth in your hard palate, though it does not hurt, but you are being a chronic smoker so it should be investigated.

Here I would like to tell you that please consult any ENT doctor for excisional biopsy of the lump and plan for treatment according to biopsy report.
