Thanks for your query. I have gone through your query.
The soreness or ulcer could be a aphthous ulcer. The most common cause is strrss or post surgical(removal of lump) or nutritional deficiency. Nothing to be panic, consult a oral physician and get it evaluated.
Meanwhile you can take symptomatic treatment like topical anesthetic like 2% lignocaine gel. Apply 3-4times daily. Consume nutritious food.lead a stress free life. I hope my answer will help you. Take care

Hello, thank you for consulting with healthcaremagic.
It is not necessary that the canker sore is because of this benign tumor only, it can be because of stress, or trauma from tooth or stomach problem.
Better that once you should visit your dentist and get it examined and then plan the treatment accordingly.
Hope it will help you.
