My name is Nicholas Kalavrezos, and I'm a Consultant in Head & Neck/Reconstructive Surgery at University College London Hospital. The topic of my presentation today is "Lumps and Bumps in the Mouth and Lips".
0:17
Lumps and bumps of the mouth and the lips, broadly speaking, belong in four different categories: malformations, namely congenital lesions, traumatic, infections of inflammatory origin. And of course, last but not least, neoplasias.
0:38
A typical appearance of a lesion from the first category, from the malformations, are the low flow malformations which are manifested as bluish branchial compression lesions.
0:54
Capillary haemangiomas, indeed, belong also in the malformation category. And have usually a more subtle appearance of a bluish manifestation.
1:05
I will skip the rather typical traumatic lesions. And also at this point, the infections, and inflammatory manifestations. And I will concentrate, in the next few slides, in the most important pathology that may be manifested as a swelling of the mouth or of the lip. Indeed, these are the oral malignant and pre-malignant conditions.
