Oral Cancer

Swelling Caused from a Oral Biopsy

11/17/2008

Question:

Hi, I recently had an oral biopsy on the floor of my mouth. Before that my mouth was almost healty apart from a small lesion which caused to do a biopsy but after that I am having pain in gums again and again I contacted my doctor a couple of times for this and she is not giving any medication for this, instead she is saying that it is normal, but the cut which she did for biopsy is swelling a little bit from one side and getting hard.I am doubtfull about this though my doctor says it is normal and she is saying that lets wait for biopsy reports from the week ago.
