I have a red spot in the top of my mouth – I believe it is called the hard palate. It bleeds sometimes, and there is some pain and burning from time to time. I am concerned it might be cancer.
Any lesions in the mouth that persist and don’t get better with time should be evaluated by your doctor. Of particular concern are areas that are ulcerated (open sores), painful or are prone to bleeding. Not all areas that meet these criteria are cancerous, however, but a biopsy may be needed to differentiate between cancer and other causes, such as an infection.
