Mole In Mouth

Published: May 14, 2012
Dear TeenHealthFX,
URGENT, URGENT, URGENT-I'M SCARED! I just felt this lump on the side of my gums inside my mouth. I looked in the mirror and it appears to be a brown mole. What could it be! It is inside my mouth! Please respond quickly, I'm extremely nervous!

Dear Mole In Mouth,


TeenHealthFX thinks he best thing to do is to see a doctor or a dentist. This will help to relieve your stress about this and get an accurate diagnosis/treatment.


No website would be able to give you a responsible answer to your question. You need to be examined by a physician so an accurate diagnosis can be made. We know this may sound like a "cop out", but it really is in your best interest.


See your doctor soon. When you call to make the appointment, let the person that schedules the appointment know about your mole and that you are upset. This may help you to see the doctor quickly. If you need a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973.889.6350 for an appointment.
