Hi XXXXXXX

I can understand your concerns about Myocarditis and MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndrome) relating to your son's mouth ulcers.

Always physicians would look for most common reasons and then common conditions for any symptom. Hence in your son's case we look at stress (physical or mental) and nutritional deficiencies and followed by dental causes as prime reasons. Sailing has an intense physical stress so can be related. Once we rule them out the other uncommon causes then you mentioned above should be ruled out.

Yes if the ulcers are non healing, recurring and long standing for months there is a reason to worry.

First put off your worries take him to the nearest physician.
