I am a 40 year old female who since the age of 13 smoked on & off (more on) until 3 months ago. I have noticed just above one of my upper front teeth there is an area which is dark red and has now become slightly bumpy. This has been there for a couple of months and is now changing in size and appearance. I have tried to book with my dentist, who I haven't seen for a couple of years (I'm a coward) but I can't get in for another month as he is so busy.
I admit I am worried at what it may be. There is no pain at all.
I would very much appreciate your advice. Thank you for reading my message. :-)
