Hey im shan ,im 20 now ,im not a heavy smoker or i dont drink regularly i smoke 1-2 cigarettes a week , and have a beer 1-2 times a month but recently i noticed that whenever i smoke or drink my hard palate swells and it heals in its own within 3 days , and now i have 2 soft lumps on my hard palate and there are small nodules too and there is a hard lump which feels tight to my tongue and its been 6 days now , im confused that when i check on google all it says is it is a cancer situation ,here is a photo
Id suggest a visit to your doctor or dentist to get this checked.
Is it contagious? Or an early sign of cancer?
No cancer is contagious. But other oral diseases may be.
Unfortunately it’s impossible to judge from a photo,
It seems to be a unusual, so sounds like it needs to be checked anyhow.
