Brief Answer: Leukoplakia more likely Detailed Answer: Good morning XXXXX, Thank you for the images. I have looked into them in depth. The lesion seems more likely to be Leukoplakia. This I tell you because of its presence since a year, and there are no associated symptoms like itching and pain. Many a time, the cause for this is unknown or idiopathic. However, smoking, tobacco use, alcohol, malocclusion of teeth can cause this. You must be aware of this. Do not worry; this is a harmless condition. However, it would be better to get a mucosal biopsy of the lesion to rule out any pre-existing cancer. Please request your primary care physician to order a mucosal biopsy of the same. Otherwise, this requires a close watch, and annual follow up with your doctor. Hope this information helps you. Let me know if you have more queries. Good day!
Thanks Mam .. Have a great day :)
Brief Answer: Thank you too Detailed Answer: It's my pleasure to help you. Take care!
