Evaluation Needed: If you have had this for 8 years, then it could be normal for you but you should get a second opinion to find out the diagnosis for your discomfort as it's not likely that it is normal for you.

Ulcer: It is highly unlikely that a lesion that has lasted for 8 years is an ulcer. You should consult on oral surgeon.

Recurrent mouth ulce: Do they heal and they reoccur? If the do more likely they are recurrent mounth ulcers.
