What could be the reason for spot on the roof of mouth ?

My dentist told me today that I have a spot on the roof of my mouth that has fatty tissue and is not pink like the rest of the roof of my mouth. If I burned the roof of my mouth could this be the reason and if so how long before the color would return?

Hi, it may be due to reverse smoking, if u do, or may be due to a mouth burn due to hot food or liquids. The yellow appearance may be due to pus formation with the ulceration. Please apply Hexigel ointment as frequently as possible. The ulcer may heal in a week's time. Please consult an oral surgeon if it doesn't subside in a week or so. Some ulcers are precancerous. so do not neglect it. Regds!
