Leukoplakia

Leukoplakia is a precancerous lesion that develops on the tongue or the inside of the cheek as a response to chronic irritation . Occasionally , leukoplakia patches develop on the female external genitalia . The Doc reckons it could be leukoplakia (Something I have just found out is a precancerous lesion).
Overview
The primary symptom of leukoplakia is a skin lesion with the following characteristics : Location
Symptoms
The goal of treatment is to eliminate the lesion . Removal of the source of irritation is important and may lead to disappearance of the lesion.Dental causes such as rough teeth , irregular denture surface , or fillings should be treated as soon as possible . Is it possible that I could turn into a very hairy man?
Treatment
Leukoplakia is primarily a disorder of the mucous membranes of the mouth . It is caused by irritation . Lesions usually develop on the tongue , but they may also appear on the insides of the cheek.Irritation may result from rough teeth or rough places on dentures , fillings , and crowns . It may also result from smoking or other tobacco use -LRB- smoker 's keratosis -RRB- . Persons who smoke pipes are at high risk for developing this condition , as are those who hold chewing tobacco or snuff in the mouth for a long period of time.Leukoplakia patches may develop on the female external genital area , but the cause is unknown.Like other mouth ulcers , leukoplakia may become cancerous.The disorder is most common in the elderly. " Hairy " leukoplakia of the mouth is an unusual form of leukoplakia that is seen mostly in HIV - positive people . It may be one of the first signs of HIV infection . A false/negative could be signs of an early cancer or it could be signs of a condition known as a leukoplakia which is a type of benign condition, or the false/negative could also be a pre-cancerous condition sometimes known as a hyperplasia. It can also appear in others when their immune systems are not working well , such as after a bone marrow transplant . It may be caused by the Epstein - Barr virus.White patches usually appear on the tongue and sometimes on other places in the mouth . The condition may look like thrush , a type of candida infection that is also associated with HIV and AIDS in adults . Sounds like it could be "oral thrush."
Causes
The typical white patch of leukoplakia develops slowly , over weeks to months . The lesion may eventually become rough in texture , and may become sensitive to touch , heat , spicy foods , or other irritation.A biopsy of the lesion confirms the diagnosis . An examination of the biopsy specimen may find changes that indicate oral cancer . Yes, I have heard that it is a good sign having leukoplakia for a long time and no other symptoms because it probably means that it has'nt turned into oral cancer yet. definely try him giving u oral or give him oral so his penis is lubricated we've had unprotected oral sex, i've fingered her a couple times and shes given me oral sex and I have given her oral also
Tests & diagnosis
Leukoplakia is usually harmless , and lesions usually clear in a few weeks or months after the source of irritation is removed . Approximately 3 % of leukoplakia lesions develop cancerous changes . Someone with HIV/AIDS can have the "smooth" variant of leukoplakia as well, and if someone presents with those symptoms, it's very important to try to rule out BOTH precancerous lesions as well as other conditions that affect the immune system. Hairy leukoplakia is often a sign of HIV infection and an increased likelihood of developing AIDS .
Prognosis
Minimize or stop smoking or other tobacco use . Have rough teeth treated and dental appliances repaired promptly . Safer sexual practices minimize the risk of contracting sexually - transmitted diseases , including HIV .
Prevention
Chronic discomfort
Complications
Call for an appointment with your health care provider if you have any lesions resembling leukoplakia or hairy leukoplakia .

I've heard of hairy palms.....but not hair loss linked to masturbation.
Receiving oral sex is a nil risk, giving oral sex to ejaculation is an extremely low risk.
