    Answer - verruca vulgaris (wart)

    The lesions that occur within the oral cavity are typically - softer and more whitish than on the skin.

    Other conditions to consider
    Squamous cell carcinoma
    Giant cell fibroma
    Neurofibroma
    Benign and malignant salivary gland tumors

    Management

    • Electrodesiccation, cryosurgery with LN[SUB]2[/SUB], and/or laser (see Appendix B)
    • Conservative: wait-and-see attitude, because many of the usual wart treatments are difficult to use in this location.
