more about Leukoplakia

Erythroplasia; see also erythroplakia and Oral Cancers

  • Leukoplakia is a rare, non-elevated (flat with the surface), isolated red patch (red and velvety) or lesion on the oral or pharyngeal surfaces (mucosa), such as the floor of the mouth, the ventrum of the tongue, or the soft palate.  Leukoplakia mainly affects elderly patients (60 and up).
  • This is one of the most important oral lesions because 75-90% are precancerous (i.e., a higher than normal risk of becoming cancerous).  For this reason, all suspicious lesions, especially in patients using tobacco products, should be looked at and, if necessary, should be excised and sent for microscopic (histological) examination.
