I HAVE A CYST/ULCER ON THE GUM ABOVE MY LAST UPPER TOOTH.  IT HAS BEEN THERE FOR OVER A YEAR.  IT IS TINY AND PAINLESS.  COULD IT BE ORAL CANCER?

Hi,
How are you? What other symptoms are present? Oral cancer may present  with a lump or ulcer in the mouth that may be initially painless, causes chewing problems, mouth sores, speech difficulties, swallowing difficulty or weight loss. To rule out malignancy, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Direct clinical examination and a biopsy may need to be done. Take care and do keep us posted.
