Need some history please like Age H/O Smoking Duration of the lesion The DD would be 1) SCC 2) Pyogenic Granuloma Requires CECT of Face and Neck Biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.

Advised biopsy, it's squamous cell carcinoma.

plz share some more information.... nature of lesion i. e soft, hard,... since when... any history.... unusual site for scc though, multiple prosthesis is all I see....

Looks like benign as no mucosal discontinuity or erosion but since no proper history given ,advised for a FNAC and get possible diagnosis at the earliest. Trt.can be planned accordingly. Alternatively as suggested above straight proceed for Excidional Biopsy.
