My daughter fell about 6 months ago. Her tooth in the front turned dark gray. Said it wasn't dead it was ok. White bump on gum now red is it serious?

Needs treatment: The blow to her tooth caused the nerve & tissues inside her tooth to become necrotic which in turn led to the discoloration. This often takes time to develop & present itself as an infection. It requires immediate treatment & she should be seen by a dentist (general dentist or endodontist) for an evaluation, which will probably require root canal therapy if the tooth is salvageable (or extraction). ...Read more

Many possibilities: It could be from an infection in the tooth from trauma, small fibroma (benign), spot of irritation from fingers. Best way to rule out infections is to visit your dentist and have an xray to determine if there is an intra-boney infection. If you can wipe it off it might be the start of a yeast infection ...Read more

I have a single white bump on my upper lip. I have had it for probably 2-3 months now. Almost looks like an all white wartwart. Any ideas?

See derm: It could be a mucocyst or it could be a early skin cancer. The important thing is to be seen and if it is not a cyst or small inclusion cyst then a biopsy should be done to rule out an early skin cancer.

Not cancer: Lesions in the mucosa of the mouth that are malignant grow, ulcerate and spread to nodal tissue in the neck. A firm nodule in the mucosal layer of the lip would probably be derived from minor salivary gland tissue and if stable would be a benign condition. Should it enlarge, excision is simple. ...Read more

Two problems: Let another doctor look at your lip if the scaly bump is always there. It could be precancerous but probably not in a 35 year old female. I would guess that the facial pain and swelling is unrelated to the lip, and I would believe the doctor on that one. ...Read more
