Hi IV got red spots size of small buttons on my soft palate in my mouth but before that happened a week ago i had a ulcer on the palatine is it cancer?

Probably not: It is not possible to answer this question without a clinical exam. However, this may be a fungal infection, such as yeast (thrush) or a another condition altogether. I strongly recommend you see your primary care physician or an ENT fro an evaluation. If these lesions persist, there may be a need to take a small sample (biopsy) to confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more

What looks like a Canker sore on soft palate. Red spots in back of throat/roof of mouth. Mouth is also yellow in color instead of pink. What is this?

That's not an easy ?: Sorry about that, but I'm certain a doctor will need to examine you to answer that question. What other physical symptoms do you have? How long has this been an issue? Any fever? Maybe mono? Maybe oral herpes? The yellow could be superficial growth of bacteria or damaged skin or it might be jaundice. So, in a nutshell this is a situation where exam is unavoidable if you want answers. Feel better! ...Read more

Unless you recently burnt your mouth with hot food or drink, or if you have been eating too much of a spicy or hot food, or changed mouthwash or toothpaste. Then stop doing it & give it 3 days to heal. See doc then if needed ...Read more

I had a single small red/white bump on soft palate for a couple days and its gone. In HIV mouth sores, would there only be one or would it be more?

More than one likely: There are more than one type or mouth sores usually related to hiv. Most have more to do with being immunosupressed- like candidiasis (ulcers caused by yeast infections), cold and herpetic ulcers as well as leukoplakia ("hairy tounge"). The onset of a single small lesion that has healed is not an indicator that you have contracted hiv. If you are still fearful, the best remedy is testing. ...Read more
