, Thanks question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you.
Do you have any lymph nodes in your neck?
Is the overlying mucosa on that lump normal and smooth?
Is the lump hard or soft?
I am an ENT and head and neck surgeon and it's my speciality to deal with these lesions.
You have discovered this just 2 weeks ago?
Has it increased or decreased in size so far?
Thanks a lot input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want.
As per your description there are few possibilities.
It can be a mucus retention cyst (salivary gland cyst)
It can be a benign tumour called pleomorphic adenoma.
It is quite common in soft palate.
Yes it can be connected to the leukoplakia and can be cancer as well.
But cancer is least likely
In my opinion it is not likely to be cancer because of its smooth surface and usually at soft palate cancer present as an ulcer rather than lump
Lumps at soft palate are usually cysts or benign pleomorphic adenoma.
Steroids are not going to help you with this problem.
You need to see an ENT specialist and needs to get this removed
It should be checked and only then you can get the diagnosis.
Yes you should push referral but there is nothing to be stressed.
My best wishes are with you.
Yes they can
ENT is the best person .
GP can't help you with this.
You are most welcome.
Any question please?
No go .
Maxillofacial is not best .
Yes and I assure you that at your age and as per description of lesion, cancer is last option and chances only less than 5%
