A 49 years old patient was referred to my clinic complaining about an asymptomatic lesion on the palatal side of teeth #26 and 27. The patient was systematically healthy and as he mentioned, the duration of the lesion was about one month and the only symptom expressed by the patient was slight bleeding during tooth brushing and flossing the area.The lesion is painless. Patient had a CBCT image of the area.patient has no signs and symptoms of periodontal disease.
1- what para-clinical exams should be performed?
2- If there is a need for biopsy, which type and how should be carried on?

If it has been present for month and no pain I would definitely refer to specialist as would suspect potential for something sinister

Seems like classic slough and granulation tissue fill? Burn? Could be a desquamative lesion as well.

Pharmacists should be cognizant of common oral lesions and the various medications used for their management. Oral lesions may present as a multitude of different diagnoses, ranging from benign to malignant.
