Tongue ulcer,painfu,l white background,clear margins...chews tobacco 70 year female. Investigation, management and diagnosis



R/O CA tongue

It doesn't look malignancy usually do...I see sharp lingual cusps, do coronoplasty give Becosule syrup, with Mucopain gel, wait for 3 week follow up... then think of biopsy... could be simply irritation fibroma bcs the margins are clear and blanching is visible...

Traumatic ulcer , Suggest, abstinence from tobacco, dental consultation to correct sharp edges of teeth, Betadine mouth wash, vitamins . If persistent, consider biopsy.
