I developed a white hard/rough patch on the left side of my tongue some time ago.It looked a bit similar to Oral Hairy Leukoplakia.
I used my teeth to bite off a large piece of the patch (the top part of it) & it bled a bit.After about 2-3 weeks the patch dissappeared and my tongue was normal. After 2 months this patch re-appeared and i did the same and again it dissappeared in 2-3 weeks time.
It's been 2 months now since the last time this patch appeared. My tongue is normal now.
can anyone help me for the following.
Can an oral hairy leukoplakia patch dissappear within 2-3 weeks if someone removes a part of the patch like I did ?
If the patch is left alone & no antiviral treatment is given, will it disappear ?
Can these patches be surgically removed and if so will they re-appear ?
