Recurrent ulcer on tonsil
Hello, I have an ulcer inside my mouth on top of the tonsil. It keeps coming and going. Whenever I eat food (hot or spicy) it forms a blister which then pops and heals and comes back again after a few days. This has been happening for like 2 months. Please could you suggest what is wrong as I read on the Internet saying if a mouth ulcer doesn't heal, it could be cancer.

Please attach clear photographs of effected area for better guidance and treatment options. Recurrent Ulcer formation could be due to hot and spicy food. So avoid them for few days. If it occur again then consult doctor online or offline.

Hi... There are a lot of triggering factors for the ulcers on tonsil food, allergies,stress, bacterial infections, hormones, nutritional deficiencies. The triggering factor for your ulcers is hot and spicy food as you have mentioned, so it will time and again keep coming unless you avoid those particular food which are triggering it. And you don’t need to worry about cancer just consult a dentist once, you’ll be relieved. Since these ulcers are unapproachable with hands ointment won’t help but mouthwashes will definitely help you.
Next Steps
Consult a dentist online/offline
Health Tips
Do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day.
