Question: I have some oral irritation on one side on the roof of my mouth. I have had it biopsied in the past. Not cancer. But it seems to be more prominent at some times but never totally goes away. Any suggestions? I drink alcohol but do not smoke

And, would you have an ENT or Oral Surgeon check it?

Thanks

Also what is it since it never goes away? It’s been there to some degree for more than 10 years

Brief Answer:
If it is present for years and in biopsy nothing has come out, then not to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Hope you are doing well.

If it is present for years and in biopsy, nothing has come out then you have nothing to worry.

But still, you should consult an ENT surgeon. It seems that it may be lichen planus, vitamin C or B complex deficiency.

There is nothing to worry.
Take a daily multivitamin supplement, do betadine gargle twice daily.

Please revert back if you have any query.
