Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your attached photograph (attachment removed to protect patient identity) and understand your concern regarding your dental health.

  • From the picture, it looks like a pyogenic granuloma which is very common at this age and is easily treatable.
  • But, you must go for a confirmed diagnosis by biopsy. So consult your nearby dentist for the same. It is treatable by scrapping off or cauterization. Nothing to worry about this.
  • Hope this information will be helpful to resolve your query.

Investigations to be done:

Biopsy of the lump.
