Lumps, growths or masses in the mouth may represent reactive growths, viral conditions, mucoceles, sialoliths, benign neoplasms, malignant tumors and other conditions. Evaluation is important in order to establish a diagnosis.
Dr. Nita Chainani-Wu has extensive experience in the diagnosis and management of oral growths, including use of carbon dioxide laser for biopsies and excision/vaporization of oral growths. In case of a diagnosis of a malignant tumor, management involves a team approach with a surgeon and other health care providers.
