This is one of the most common tumours in
the oral cavity.
It's a benign tumour.
The main cause is chronic trauma, usually a
bite.How is it manifest?
Exophytic lesion on the oral mucosa,
especially: tongue, cheeks and behind the labial commissures. If the trauma is
recent, there may be an ulceration (thrush) in the bitten region.Is it indicated to be removed?
YesWhat is the most suitable treatment?
At Instituto Português da Face, we remove
fibroids using a LASER.
The LASER enables a faster treatment, with
less bleeding, a postoperative period with less oedema (swelling) and less pain
for the patient, who does not need stitches (sutures).
We always send the fibroma for analysis so
that no relevant information is lost.
