Hello, I am going to try and help you with your question today.

In researching the cause of oral lesions, the list is extensive. It does not sound too concerning, but the following questions will help me:

1. Is there only ONE area in question?
2. Is it raised or shallow, like an ulcer?
3. Is it completely red, or pale at the center?
4. How large is it in mm?

Thank you.
