Yes, two!: First, stop smoking! although there are other possible causes, smoking can cause irritation and inflammation to the soft tissues in the mouth and eventual cancerous lesions. Second, see a dentist to diagnose and treat your teeth and gums before you lose your teeth. Both serious conditions that need to be evaluated and treated as appropriate.

Yeast infection: The red pebbly surface of the hard palate describes a typical presentation of yeast infection, especially if you wear a partial denture and are a smoker. You should see a dentist for a proper diagnosis and treatment, and if you have a partial to get it refitted.

Tooth abscess: If, as you said, you have many broken teeth, the lesion on your palate may be due to a tooth abscess that is draining through your hard palate. You need to see a dentist!
