Why You Need to Track Lumps in Your Mouth
Posted on 5/23/2018 by Scott Redlinger
There are a bunch of different reasons that lumps can form in the mouth, some are pretty mild, like a hormone-induced granuloma, while others are much more serious like an infection or oral cancer. It's important to have any lump in your mouth checked out to make sure you don't have one of these issues more serious issues. While some of the more minor problems aren't likely to be a real concern, something serious like cancer should be. Why Lumps Should be Checked as Soon as PossibleIf you have a lump in your mouth, it's unlikely that you know exactly why it's there. There are a few potential issues that it could result from, and unless you have a way of knowing which issue it's from, you need to get it checked out. A specialist will be able to tell you why the lump is there, and to make sure that you don't have something like cancer in your mouth. When you notice a lump, make an appointment with us immediately to have it checked out more closely. We will take a close look at it and refer you to an oncologist if it appears to be cancerous. It's really important to get it checked out as soon as possible, because if it is from oral cancer, it needs to be treated as soon as possible to keep it from spreading.

Lumps in your mouth aren't always serious, but you won't know what the lump is caused from until you go in to get checked out. Make sure that you're seeking help as soon as possible to avoid running into life-threatening issues. If you find a lump in your mouth, give us a call today or come in to our office to have it checked out. We can help you determine what it is and refer to you to a specialist if necessary....
