Dr. Hasan :

If you are worried about anything like cancer, i would like to reassure you with 100% confidence that cancer is out of question because cancerous lesions don't present like this, they are associated with neck swellings and they can't stay in a same size for two years as oral cancers are fast growing.

Yes it is fairly possible.

You need to see an ENT and he can either treat it with medicines or he can just cauterize it in office.

There is nothing to be stressed for sure.
