Hi. The biopsy report says it’s only epithelial hyperplasia. Not malignant. Is he pan or gutka chewer, smoker or alcoholic. If so ask him to stop all.
Next Steps
Take multivitamin for 15 days and antibiotics for 7 days. If the lesion has not changed in size or increasing then repeat biopsy.
Health Tips
Avoid pan or gutka chewing, smoking and alcohol consumption.
