Sometimes Tongue Warst Can Be Mixed With "Fibroma"

Warts (papilloma) are the lesions resulting from infection by benign subgroups of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV virus - Human Papilloma Virus). Sometimes, it can be mixed with "fibroma" due to mucosal irritation.


What is Oral Fibroma?

"Fibroma" means a benign tumor consisting mainly of fibrous tissue. It is a benign tumor consisting of a spindle-shaped connective tissue cell mass. Oral fibroma is a tumor-like fibrous wound tissue mass that is typically caused by chronic trauma with a bite injury. There is no gender preference and can be seen in any age group. A small, fluffy lump on the side of this tongue is an oral fibroma or an extremely soft tissue tissue. They often cause repeated trauma into the lips, cheeks or tongue and grow as the weeks pass. They are benign and usually do not show any symptoms, but any unusual lump or patch in the mouth should always be examined by a dentist or doctor to ensure that they do not have cancer.

Which Fibromas Are Most Common in the Mouth?

Typically, traumatic fibromas are frequently seen in the lower lip, lateral edges of the tongue, and buccal mucosa in which mouth irritation (trauma) is present.

The terms "traumatic fibroma" or "irritation fibroma" are used synonymously. ("traumatic fibroma in the mouth", "traumatic fibroma in the tongue" or "traumatic fibroma in the cheek").

In rare cases, fibroma patients have epithelial dysplasia due to the effect of HPV virus on the upper surface of the fibroma. The highlighted information in the case report of "Oral fibroma with HPV-associated epithelial dysplasia: even in fibromas you should look for the unexpected ":


"Oral fibroma with HPV-associated epithelial dysplasia: an unexpected condition should be sought even in fibromases. Fibromas are the most common soft tissue lesions of the oral cavity and are usually attributed to trauma. Here, we report a case of oral fibroma with HPV-induced dysplastic changes of surface epithelium confirmed by immunohistochemical dyes for p16 and p53 as well as HPV in situ hybridization."

Oral fibromas have various causes. Oral fibromas are typically seen in patients who continue to irritate the gums, tongue and cheeks. For this reason, oral fibroma are usually caused by chronic conditions such as cheek-bite, friction or dental prostheses. Any area of ​​irritation in the mouth may be at risk of developing oral fibromas over time. For example, if there is a gap between the teeth, it may come out as a result of the penetration of the cheek mucosa into the space and your bite, or it may be caused by a regular bite of the lips. This may be due to poorly aligned teeth and inappropriate use of improper teeth.

Symptoms of Oral Fibroma

To obtain the best results from oral fibroma treatment, it is important to catch up early. Some of the early symptoms of oral fibromas include unusual lumps in the mouth, rough surfaces in the cheeks, and pale or dark spots of the cheek or gum tissue. Typically, oral fibromas are not larger than a centimeter width.

Symptoms of traumatic fibroma include:

• It usually occurs as a single nodule (tongue, cheek and lip) in the mouth. Rarely, the tumor may also occur as a large number of nodules.

• The nodule is typically smaller than 2 cm (may be larger in size) and normally grows slowly and slowly.

• The skin on the nodule may be brownish-red to white, but is usually pink and in the mouth mucosa.

• The masses are generally well-circumscribed, light hard and smooth surface.

• Most fibromas are asymptomatic; However, in others, a wide range of behavior is observed.

Traumatic fibromas may develop as new growth occurs between weeks and months.

What Are The Risk Factors For Traumatic Fibroma? (Predisposing Factors)

Risk factors for traumatic fibroma include:

• Familial fibromatosis

• fibrotic papillary hyperplasia from the palate

• Tuberous sclerosis

• Multiple hamartoma syndrome (Multiple hamartoma syndrome - Cowden's disease)

• Improper oral mouth prostheses

It is important to note that having a risk factor does not mean that the person will get the situation. A risk factor increases the risk of fibroma development compared to an individual without risk factors. Some risk factors are more important than others
