Mouth Diseases

Bumps or lumps

02/18/2009

Question:

I have lumps in my mouth, but I also have them on my vagina, which the doctor says they are common in older women. But I am concern about my mouth also. Haven`t had sex for several years because of the lumps on my vagina. What kind of a doctor should I see. I thin I might have candia. How do I find out. My doctor seems unconcerned.

Answer:

You should see an oral pathologist for evaluation of the bumps in your mouth. As far as the vaginal lumps are concerned, an obstetrician-gynecologist would be the appropriate doctor to evaluate those. It would be difficult to say whether these are related without doing an examination and determining exactly what these bumps are.
