I just turned 20 years old.
I'm SUPER freaked out about this red area in my mouth on the top palette. It started out as a nasty canker sore, and then turned into like a mouth ulcer. It was really sore and swollen. It kept getting better and better but it's like it stopped healing. It doesn't hurt anymore, but it's still a red area in my mouth and it looks like the skin hasn't grown back there. I'm freaking out because its been there for 3-4 weeks and while I'm probably being a hypochondriac, I'm afraid I have oral cancer or something :(
I have never even touched a tobacco product, alcohol, or drugs, and that's what usually causes it. But I'm still freaked out!
I should also note that it first appeared when I had a cold.
Do you guys think it's normal?
