Brief Answer:
Can be premalignant lesion, go for biopsy

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for writing in.

As per your symptoms, you might be having premalignant lesion like:- leukoplakia, candidiasis or lichen planus.

To rule out, you need to go for biopsy, Meanwhile maintain good oral hygiene by regular brushing & do betadine gargles.

Please Consult an Oral surgeon for further treatment planning.

Please let me know if there's any further doubts..

Wishing you good health
