Do You Suffer From Mouth Sores, Swellings or Lesions?
Mouth, lip or tongue irritations can be annoying and painful. Mouth sores, swellings or lesions are very common; in fact, around one third of all people are affected at some point in their life by mouth sores. Mouth sores may be painful, unsightly and interfere with eating and talking.
If a mouth sore is present for longer than a week, you should have it examined. Dr Linc may recommend a biopsy; this can usually determine the cause, ruling out serious diseases.
