Removal of lumps and bumps

LUMPS, BUMPS AND ORAL LESIONS SUSPICIOUS CANCER

Are all Lumps & Bumps dangerous?

Not all lumps and bumps are cancerous, but some lesions have a greater potential for becoming cancerous. Your Dentist should include a standardised oral examination inside and outside your mouth which will only take a few minutes.

The importance of early detection

Early detection saves lives. It is possible to detect oral cancer early with regular check-ups and prompt investigations. Tissue changes inside and outside the mouth may be a sign of early cancer. At Parkway Clinic our Consultants and Specialist Oral Surgeons are committed to thorough investigations and early diagnosis of oral cancers.

Possible signs and signals

  • Thickening of Oral Soft Tissue
  • A Lump in the Soft Tissue
  • Soreness
  • Difficulty in swallowing or chewing
  • Swelling of jaw that causes dentures to fit poorly
  • Lesions on lip due to sunburn

We recommend you contact your Dentist or arrange an appointment with one of our Consultants if you have any concerns. Telephone Parkway Clinic 01792 455780.
