Identifying abnormal growths and disease in the mouth
The first step in treating any ailment is to recognize the symptoms and have it properly diagnosed by an experienced professional. Sticking to regular teeth cleanings and appointments with your dentist can help to detect potential problems early. Knowing how to perform a self-assessment at home can also help you distinguish the earliest signs of disease.
To perform a self-exam:
- Look for any visible lumps, lesions, or texture or color changes in the inside of your mouth. Examine your gums, inner cheeks, the roof and floor of your mouth, the entirety of your tongue, and the back of your throat.
- Feel for lumps or lesions that may not be visible by feeling behind your jaw, underneath your ears, on each side of your neck while turning your head, the underside of your jaw as your head is tilted back, and by grabbing your throat and swallowing.
- Pay attention to symptoms of pathologies, including jaw instability, pressure, pain, irritation while swallowing, and physical deformities.
If you notice anything that looks or feels abnormal, contact a maxillofacial surgeon immediately. We can perform a more in-depth examination. This will allow us to diagnose any abnormalities and address the issue before it presents a greater risk to your health.
