Pathology finding: This is a finding seen on a biopsy usually taken from inside the mouth. It could mean that you have oral erosive lichen planus or a different type of problem that cause an ulcer in the mouth. I recommend you see a dermatologist with experience in diagnosis and treament of oral diseases.
