Question: Hi im a 27 year old male currently traveling on holiday in the usa. I have developed a ulcer in the mouth on top of my right gum that runs like a line. It has been there for a week now and im stressed out over it not sure what has caused it. To add to that i also have a pain in the cheek it feels as though ive bitten my right cheek, and today i just developed a sore throut, i have been in and out of the pool and the room aircon is abit cold, i also went to a pub last night where there was alot of smoke. But all these symptoms ive searched leads to a mouth cancer which has me stressed. I do suffer from anxiety also. I recently finished a course of antibiotics for a prolonged cough.

Brief Answer:
Apthous ulcer, Nothing to be worried .

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,

Welcome again .

I have read your query and gone through images you have attached . As far as I have observed you have Mutiple Minor Apthous ulcers. There is nothing to worried so much as Apthous ulcers are non cancerous . As you are asking about cancerous ulcers they are usually single , large with indurated borders and usually appear on or under tongue . So i will suggest you to apply Ointment containing Lignocaine and choline salicylate 3 to 4 times a day . Take vitamin B , C supplements with Metronidazole . You can also take Analgesic (painkiller) medicine like Ibugesic plus or Tylenol by consulting with local doctor.

Hope I have answered your query .
If you have further query I will be happy to help.

stress, improper sleep , vitamin deficiency .

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,

Welcome .

I have read your query . I think cause of Ulcers might be due to Stress , improper sleep , Drug induced (Antibiotics you have taken ) or vitamin B deficiency. If ulcer last longer more than three weeks then I will suggest you to consult Oral surgeon for clinical examination to rule out infective conditions . As you have started applying Ointment yesterday only dont be worried so much apply ointment 3 to 4 times a day and take vitamin B and C supplements with Metronidazole . Follow these measures you will get relief .

Hope I have answered your query .
