Hello
I noticed that I have this small red lesion on the inside of my right cheek. Not sure how long I’ve had it but I noticed it approx 8 weeks ago. No symptoms at all. I showed my dentist about a month ago when in for a cleaning. He took a picture of it and said he will take a look at it again at my next six month check up. He said he didn’t have any concerns but if i notice any changes, I can come back in. Is that standard protocol? I was hoping to get a resolution as I am tired of looking at it to see if it is still there. I was thinking of maybe getting another opinion but maybe I am overreacting. There doesn’t appear to be any ulceration or elevated growths. Just discoloration.

I know pictures are difficult to judge, but does this spot look concerning at all? I have had a lot of injections the last 14 months (wisdom teeth removal, crown, scaling) so maybe the redness is from a previous injection?

That is not sinister at all. Stop worrying. Stop checking it. Chill.
