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

Bite might be off: It could be ulcer from trauma. Did you eat or drink something hot. If your biting the wall of you mouth, its your bite, is it normal or something new. If the red spots don't go away in 3-5 days, see a dentist to check hope this helps. ...Read more
