A Lump In The Mouth.?
I want to ask, there are lumps in the gum area under a period of time that has been quite long, and over time there are white patches in the area of the lump.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The lumps on the lower part of the gum and palate with white patches around it may be caused by:
Benign or malignant tumors, such as mucocele, ranula, fibroma, sarcoma Infection, such as tonsillopharyngitis, candidiasis, herpes simplex, herpes zoster, genital warts, abscess Normal mucosal variations and so on. Are there other complaints that you feel besides the appearance of the lump? Do you feel itchy, sore, difficult to swallow, difficult to chew, difficult to talk, or other complaints? Does the size of the lump enlarge rapidly?
We recommend that you consult yourself directly to the doctor, ENT specialist, or the nearest dentist so that the lump can be identified. Further examination, for example a biopsy, laboratory, etc. may be done by a doctor so that it is clear what kind of treatment is appropriate to resolve your complaint.
At present, it is not advisable to hold let alone slough off a lump that appears, with any instrument. Be more diligent in brushing your teeth, clean your tongue, and rinse with salt solution so that your teeth and mouth hygiene are always maintained. Avoid all forms of risky sex, including oral sex with partners whose sexual history is unclear. Do not forget, always live a healthy lifestyle so that the immune system remains excellent.
Hope this helps ...
