In brief: Lab tests

Bejel affects the mucous membranes of the mouth, then the skin and bones.
The initial mouth sore may not be noticed. Moist patches then develop in the mouth. They resolve over a period of months to years. During this time, people have few or no symptoms. Then, lumps develop in long bones, mainly leg bones. Labs tests are necessary for diagnosis. See a doctor. Very similar to syphillis.
