Is a ulcer in the mouth a symptom of leukoplakia?
It doesn't appear to be as leukoplakia
Hi! Welcome to health care magic! Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible.
Based on the history you have shared, and by looking at it, it might be traumatic ulcer and will heal within few more weeks. By the look of it, it doesn't seem to be as leukoplakia. If it spreads further or grows further, or it's margins become raised or become clearly defined whitish pale, then it would need a second opinion by another dentist or oral physician.
Meanwhile using oral Glycerine or local anesthetic oral gels may be helpful for symptomatic relief. Hope this has answered your query, if you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
Also it is painless, although did hurt when the drill first caught my tongue
You can wait for another two weeks before a second opinion
Hi! Thanks for the detailed feedback. You can wait for another two weeks as this appears to be in resolving stages but since quite some time has passed already so a second opinion may be needed if it persists. Regards.
its traumatic ulcer in healing process.
Hello, welcome to health care magic. Hope you are doing good . According to the histroy of trauma, I am still of the opinion that it is traumatic ulcer and it is in healing process as your dentist's opinion It will take another 2-3week to revcover completely. But still if it doesn't then get an dental consultation. Since there is history of trauma so it's least likely cancer. Wait for another 2-3weeks and then report. Hope you are satisfied now. Thanks
