My suggestion would be to carry out all baseline investigations, Do a thorough screening for local irritants if any, Systemic status of pt. being diabetic advise strict control, Check for lymphadenopathy, Add supportive treatment according to the chief complaint of the patient, Recall after every month closely observe the lesion, if at all any alterations .. be ready for biopsy.
