If this has been going on for months, it may be viral or an allergy to something. Contact a dentist and have them evaluate it — a biopsy or at the very least, a thorough history is recommended. ...Read more

Rule of thumb for all lesions is to see a doctor if it persists, or worsens. It is never disapointing to tell a patient "its nothing to worry about now", rather than the patient not give me a chance to see it before its gotten worse. Good luck. ...Read more
