Oral Fibroma Removal
I previously asked about pain after ovarian fibroma removal 3mths ago. The dr said possible scarring to adjacent tissue. Is that dangerous? Treatment?
Yes possible: Any time you have surgery it is possible to develope scar tissue around the surgical area. There is no easy fix. The only real way is to go an surgically remove the scar tissue. Sometimes that helps.
Had an oral fibroma removed today. Was given penicillin to prevent infection. Can I go without it?
This is like asking: If it is OK to drive without your seat belt on. You can do it but the consequences are potentially disastrous. It would be best to follow your health care provider's instructions and recommendations to the letter including taking any medications that were prescribed. After all, how many times have you removed oral fibromas and instructed patients in the best post op care?
Had oral fibroma removed from lower lip 3 days ago. Area is still numb. I'm just scared I won't be able to talk and lose my ability to speak down the road?
A fibrous tumor: Oma means tumor (could be cancerous or benign) and fibr relates to fibrous or firm, scar-like collagenous growths. Fibromas are usually firm and are not cancerous. Fibroadenomas are firm glandular-type benign tumors of the breast, for example. Fibroma is a pretty general term, like "mole.".
Neurofibromatosis: This is a pair of genetic diseases that make a person much more vulnerable to a variety of different tumors, most famously neurofibromas, but also acoustic neuromas / schwannomas, pheochromocytomas, and a variety of others depending on the allele and locus.See 2 more doctor answers
Skin tag: Fibroma molle (soft) as opposed to fibroma durum (hard) refers to benign skin tags often with a stalk (polypoid). They are common during pregnancy and are otherwise harmless and may disappear post partum. When bothersome, dermatologists can easily remove them. Areas where you can find them: eyelids, neck, armpits, groin, between skin folds.
Benign bone lesion:
•Non-ossifying Fibroma (NOF) is a benign fibrogenic lesion arising in bone. It is the most common benign bone tumor in childhood and is related to dysfunctional ossification
Other terms used for such lesions when defined and biopsied are metaphyseal fibrous defect,
non osteogenic fibroma and cortical desmoid
Neurofibromatosis: Neurofibromatosis type 1 and 2 are conditions caused by genetic reasons. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can take for these conditions. Treatment is only symptomatic, meaning if you had a tumor affecting your vision you can get a surgery and if you had seizures you can take anti-seizure medications.See 1 more doctor answer
Probably lipomas: They are soft collections of fatty tissue, very common, benign, and idiopathic.
No: A nof has a radiographically typical appaerance and is always benign and thus does not need to be biopsied.See 1 more doctor answer
Does icing helps Planters Fibroma? Was wearing unsupportive sneakers for a long time (ugh) I finally bought good sneakers and orthotics.
No.: Fibromas if they are painful usually need surgical excision. Injections with cortisone can sometimes help.
I think I have a fibroma on the anterior hardpalate from an injury. Hard, painless and pressing it makes it bigger. Could this be swelling? Very upset
Oral surgeon: I recommend that an oral surgeon evaluate this mass. He or she would be best qualified to advise and reassure you.
Chronic irritation: Oral fibromas usually form as a result of chronic irritation, such as: a rough tooth rubbing against gum or cheek; and chronic irritation caused by dentures or other dental appliances. It is simply a mass of connective tissue, which is similar to scar tissue, and consists of collagen. They are benign and not contagious. When they interfere with daily functioning, then should be removed.
