Get evaluated: There is no way to diagnose "a little brown spot" over the internet. It could range from a freckle to blood spot to something more serious. I doubt it's related to your numbness which really concerns me. It should concern you too. See a local dentist for an evaluation. ...Read more

Try not to bite it.: The oral cavity lining heals quickly so avoiding chewing on that side will help it heal more quickly. You may want to consult a dentist to determine if an abnormality of tooth alignment is contributing to the cheek biting. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
