Answer to Medical Challenge

The answer to yesterday's Medical Challenge is #3 - mucocele.

These lesions are nontender, smooth and usually translucent.  They are commonly found on the cheek or lip and can be the result of repetitive cheek or lip biting.  They usually disappear without any treatment.  Any new growth or lesion in the mouth should be checked out by a physician.

Thanks for playing.

Thanks for the info. The photo of mucocele is so clear that it can be identified easily, if anyone get it.
