Any lesion that persists in the mouth for more than 2 weeks or is accompanied by pain or difficulty eating needs to be evaluated by an Oral Surgeon.

In many cases the surgeon can determine the cause and may suggest a particular treatment or biopsy.  The number of possible causes are so numerous that text books are devoted to oral lesions and a diagnosis cannot be made by this forum.

Always seek the advice of your own doctor for medical condition. Only your doctor can provide specific diagnoses and therapies.
