Help! White lesion on side of mouth after anethesia. Dentist freaking me out!!!

Posted , 1 user is following.

Has this happened to anyone else? I had multiple dentist appts with other dentists, endodontists etc a few months ago for a TMJ issue including cat scans.

Then about 3 weeks ago I had laproscopic surgery for a fibroid. They intubated me for anethesia. Then today I went into get a cleaning from a different dentist to use up my insurance and she found this tiny white lumpy tissue in the back left side of my mouth between some folds and told me to get it biopsied. Tho she said could be injury from anethesia. I would think the anethesiologist would have seen it a few weeks ago and the other dentist and the something bad wouldn't grow big that fast?

I'm not in pain, sick etc. Anyone else had this? Im freaking out. Esp with COVID. I haven't had COVID to my knowledge and had a COVID test 3 weeks ago. Thx ladies. 😦
