Any alteration in the appearance of the tough and immovable tissue that surrounds each tooth and the roof of your mouth , is referred to as a lesion. One of the most serious cause for an oral mucosal lesion is oral cancer, but a great variety of infections may also create lesions.

Some of the early signs at the beginning of a cancerous growth can be:

  1. Reddish patches or whitish patches in the mouth
  2. A sore that fails to heal and bleeds easily
  3. A lump or thickening on skin lining inside of the mouth
  4. Chronic sore throat, hoarseness, or earache
  5. Difficulty in chewing or swallowing

Dr. Garin and Dr.Litman can determine the cause of your condition after learning your medical history, and performing a clinical examination. If any doubt arises about the cause for a lesion, they will recommend a small piece of the tissue to be evaluated by pathologist. Final treatment of the lesion will be dictated by what the pathologist sees under the microscope.
