Investigation and treatment of mouth ulcers

Do you suffer from mouth ulcers? Find out more about the investigation and treatment options for mouth ulcers.

What is investigation and treatment of oral ulcers?

It is looking at and sometimes carrying out a biopsy of ulcers and abnormal patches of the skin inside the mouth.

How does investigation and treatment of oral ulcers work?

By sending some of the abnormal skin to be looked at underneath the microscope. We can then tell what it is, advise whether any further treatment is necessary, or whether all of the abnormality has been removed.

What are the benefits?

The benefits are that a diagnosis is reached and further treatment can be planned.

How safe is the treatment?

Investigation and biopsy of problems with the skin inside the mouth are usually carried out under local anaesthetic and are safe. Dissolving stitches are usually used and there wouldn't usually be any significant side effects apart from a sore mouth for a few days.

Paying for your operation

Costs may be covered by most medical insurance policies, but please check with your insurer first. If you are paying for your own treatment the cost of the operation will be explained and confirmed in writing when you book the operation. Ask the hospital for a quote beforehand, and ensure that this includes the surgeon's fee, the anaesthetist's fee and the hospital charge for your procedure.
