Just a brief history of myself. 46 year old female who had a prior history of excessive alcohol use. Last year I had a white patch removed from my throat. Biopsy said chronic inflammation. Fast forward to about four and a half weeks ago a sore spot popped up on the top right side back of my tongue. Went to the dentist at 2 weeks who lasered it. Not sure why but he thought it needed debriding ? I don’t have pain here anymore which it wasn’t really painful just tender like a bruise. I’ve been watching it and it’s slowly looked better but I don’t think it’s totally going away. Of course I’m worried about oral cancer due to my past history and am worried it will just come back. Also concerned that it was lasered instead of biopsied. I will post a picture of the before during and after.
