The inside of your mouth is composed of a special type of skin called mucosa. On its normal appearance, this type of skin is smooth and coral pink in color. The alteration of this appearance could be an early indication of pathological processes. The most serious of these processes is oral cancer.
- Reddish patches (erythroplasia) or whitish patches (leukoplakia) in the mouth
- A sore that fails to heal and bleeds easily
- A lump or thickening on the skin lining the inside of the mouth
- Chronic sore throat or hoarseness or difficulty in chewing or swallowing
The oral surgeons at Somerset Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery are specially trained in the detection and diagnosis of oral cancer and other pathologies. For an accurate diagnosis of any of these symptoms, contact our offices in the Somerset County and Hunterdon County area to schedule a consultation.
