Understanding Oral Lesions and Precancerous Signs

Dentistry is not just about teeth; it also deals with the whole mouth. Do you have a burning sensation in your mouth? Do you have a non-healing ulcer in your mouth for more than 1 week? There is a possibility of having a precancerous lesion. The news that you may have a precancerous lesion is confusing and can cause stress. It’s crucial to take into account that precancerous lesions can be found nearly anywhere within the body and that early detection is one of the most important components of curing it.

Precancer is something where there isn’t cancer there, but if you don’t diagnose and treat or do something about it, it is able to turn into cancer. There are different kinds of oral lesions like Lichen planus, leukoplakia, candidiasis, etc. If you find anything abnormal in your mouth, it’s always better to consult a doctor and rule out all the possibilities of precancerous or cancerous lesions. Abnormalities vary from white patches, red patches, swelling, growth, etc. Not all oral lesions are precancerous; they can be allergic, viral, fungal, etc. For the exact diagnosis, we take a biopsy from the specific region. The Oral Medicine and Radiology department is a specialty dealing with this.
