Hello and thanks for the query.

Your question is a very good one and I will try to provide you with information and recommendations regarding the symptoms you are experiencing.

Regarding the changes in your mouth. There are a couple of possibilities here. The first consideration would be the possibility that you may have a mild fungal infection inside the mouth. This can sometimes create changes in color of the Tonga as well as the soft tissue inside the mouth. This is usually very easy to treat with antifungal medication.

The other possibility is that the changes you are seeing our representative of a viral infection. This generally is self limited and will usually go away within a few days. Sometimes a mild viral infection can cause inflammation of the toms as well as the tissue in the mouth.

Let me reassure you that the changes you are seeing do not necessarily indicate some very worrisome type of process. I do not think this is the early signs of any type of cancer at all.

I recommend that you consider seeing you or doctor agrees you may need to get a prescription for antifungal medication.

Thank you again for submitting your question . I hope you found my response to be both helpful and informative. If you have any additional concerns regarding this question I would be happy to address them.
