Hi 2009red,

I am sorry you have been having difficulty finding a correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan. Unfortunately I cannot diagnose online. I strongly suggest that you see either an oral surgeon for a definitive diagnostic procedure (biopsy) or a dental specialist in either oral pathology or oral medicine.

If you have a Dental school near you this may be the best place to start as all three specialist will be at the same location. You can look on the American Dental Educators Association website to find either a dental school or a hospital with a general dental residency or a residency in oral surgery.

I hope that this helps and that you will soon be feeling better.

Dr. Gwen Cohen Brown
