 Pre-Cancerous Lesions - FAQ's

Font : A-A+

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Which doctor should I see if I have a white patch?

You have to visit a Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon to get yourself examined.

2. Are all white patches dangerous?

Absolutely not. Some patches appear if you have taken scalding hot food. These disappear in some days. Another condition called as Aspirin burn is particularly common. Patients who are unable to tolerate a toothache often place an aspirin tablet near the affected area. This will cause a white patch as well, but there is no need to panic.

3. I have some patches on some days and I do not see any on other days. What do I do?

Sometimes a fungal condition called as Candidasis is present in the oral cavity and causes such problems. It is wise to visit your dentist for a through check up.

4. What if I cut out the patch myself?

Not only are you using an unsterile instrument like the kitchen knife; you also risk aggravating the condition.

5. After the surgery will the patch reappear?

In most cases, no. However, if multiple areas have been affected then these patches do recur. Regular visits to your doctor will take care of this.
