ORAL PATHOLOGY / BIOPSY

The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in color. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process. 

 

The following can be signs at the beginning of a pathologic process:

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
Difficulty in chewing or swallowing
 
These changes can be detected on the lips, cheeks, palate, and gum tissue around the teeth, tongue, face, and/or neck. Pain does not always occur with pathology.  Please do not ignore suspicious lumps or sores.

If a suspicious lesion is present upon examination, a biopsy will be performed at our office, and sent off to an oral pathology lab for assessment. Biopsies of the oral cavity typically heal quickly without any down time.
