Facial Pathology

Any altered appearance to the facial skin, or to the mucosa (skin lining the inside of the mouth) may be an indication of a disease process. The most serious disease we face is, of course, cancer.

Lesions which frequently prompt a referral are lumps on the skin or ulcers which fail to heal, reddish or whitish patches in the mouth, a lump inside the mouth, a chronic sore throat or hoarseness and difficulty in chewing and swallowing and occasionally earache.
