A 18-year-old female asked:
What are the odds of getting mouth cancer due to oral lichen planus?
3 doctor answers • 7 doctors weighed in
Low: The incidence of lichen planus turning into some type of oral skin cancer is very low according to my opinion. I have never seen a case study where any cases have been reported.
