A 26-year-old male asked:
Less than 2 months ago i had an oral cancer screening and was fine, now i have red ulcer on roof of mouth for two weeks straight, is this oral cancer?

Red Ulcer: Over the internet it is impossible to tell if that lesion is oral cancer. But, since it has lasted for over two weeks without resolution, it is prudent to have it examined by an oral surgeon. Please make an appointment.
