Dentist 's  Response

I have gone through your query and can understand your concern..

As per your complain an ulcer on the tip of the tongue that has not healed in a month needs to be evaluated and investigated as an apthous ulcer or even a traumatic ulcer generally resolves in about 2 weeks time..

Although if the ulcer is lasting since one month and yet has not healed then still it is not necessary to be a carcinoma or oral cancer..

I would suggest you to consult an Oral Surgeon and get evaluated and a thorough clinical evaluation and investigation like Biopsy can help in diagnosis and treatment will be done accordingly..

As of now you can start taking vitamin B complex supplement daily..
You can apply steroid ointment like Triamcinolone acetonide over it..
If it pains apply numbing gel containing Lignocaine over it..
Suck ice pops..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards..
