What could be the cause of painless red spot on the hard palate of one with Crohn's disease ?

Hello, I have a red spot on my hard palate and it is painless. I also have crohn s disease . My family doctor say s it s crohn s related and since there is no pain there is nothing to worry about. My dentist however has reccommended I see an oral surgeon to look at it. Should I be worried about this. Who s advice is better.

As described by you, the painless red spot on your palate seems to be because of Crohn's disease and will disappear with treatment of Crohn's disease.
However if the red spot is long standing and not responding to the Crohn's disease treatment, i suggest you should visit a dental surgeon who will evaluate and do a biopsy if required.
Hope this helps.

If at any time you had bleeding from this red spot ,yes you should see an Oral surgeon, otherwise forget it. chrons disesase is apt to form these red spots, once treated and kept under control the red spot may fade or disappear. So need not wory.
