Mouth Diseases

White patch and pain

03/10/2009

Question:

I have a white patch on the left hand side of my mouth towards where you tonsils should be and pain there and up it to my teeth really worried. Pain is getting worse and like really bad toothach but teeth don`t hurt just around them.

Answer:

It would be impossible to say what this was without doing a complete examination. Ideally, you should make an appointment to see an oral pathologist.
