Oral Pathology

The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and pink. Any alteration in the appearance of this tissue could be a warning sign for a pathological process. The most serious of which is oral cancer. The following can be signs at the beginning of a pathologic process or cancerous growth:

 

  • Reddish or white patches
  • A lump or thickening inside of the mouth
  • A sore that does not heal and bleeds easily
  • A longstanding sore throat or hoarseness

 

These changes can be detected on the lips, palate, cheeks and gum tissue around the teeth, tongue, facial skin and/or neck. Pain may or may not be present.

 

We recommend performing an oral self-examination monthly. Do not ignore suspicious lumps, bumps, blisters or sores. Please schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Davis (416-232-9757) if you notice any changes whatsoever in your mouth, face or neck so that he can perform a thorough examination and render treatment if needed.
