Miss X had noticed that there was a dark mark with a white pattern involving the inside of her right cheek. She wasn’t sure how long it had been there. There wasn’t any pain or other symptoms.
A specialist Oral Medicine opinion was sought. From the history and examination there were no immediate concerns.
A biopsy confirmed that there was not an underlying serious condition. The reasons for the changes to the area were discussed with Miss X. She was reassured and discharged.
