The ulcer of 6 months duration And not healed with conventional treatment. Any non - healing ulcer in oral cavity should be treated with suspicion. There are 2 possibilities 1.Malignant ulcer - take a biopsy to rule out 2.Adjoining tooth much be with sharp edge ..For that get dental consultation

IT'S A..CASE OF.. ? RECURRENT..POST TRAUMATIC.. ORAL ULCER.. ? RECURRENT APHTHOUS ULCER.. NEED'S TO R/O MALIGNANCY BIOPSY STUDY..WITH.. EXPERTS OPINION

Last 6 months, single lesion, not responding to treatment, think of injury due to sharp teeth edges. Biopsy to rule out malignant changes. Dental opinion.

Biopsy... Review with reports

I agree with the approach of @Dr. Haritma Nigam mam.

Leucoplakia / chronic traumatic oral ulcer due to sharp teeth Biopsy from ulcer, dental check

Recurr3nt post traumatic ulcer Recurrent aphthous oral ulcer Advise BIOPSY
