Good afternoon doc. I want to ask why solid lumps on the upper and lower lip and on my right and left cheeks do not heal well.

1 Answer:


Lumps in the oral cavity experienced more than 4 weeks without other complaints, can be caused by various things such as:

Mucocele is a blockage of the salivary duct.
Fordyce spot, sebaceous glands on the lips.
Fibroma, a connective tissue tumor that forms in the oral mucosa.

Oral cancer, rarely occurs and is usually triggered by the habit of smoking, chewing betel / tobacco.

To determine the exact cause of a lump in your oral cavity, please consult directly with the Oral Specialist Dentist. The doctor will do a question and answer about a lump in the oral cavity, oral examination and dental cavity. Your doctor will determine the next best medical treatment for you. If the doctor suspects a malignant condition, the doctor will usually recommend a biopsy. However, if it is caused by a mild condition, the doctor may not provide therapy or take simple measures to remove the lump.

Meanwhile, keep your teeth and oral cavity clean, do not consume soft drinks, do not smoke and multiply to eat vegetables and fruit.
