• ovary
  • head inside the cranium - pineal and suprasellar locations are most commonly reported inside the mouth - a fairly common location for teratoma neck mediastinum - account for 1% to 5% of all germ cell neoplasms pelvis, particularly sacrococcygeal teratoma ovary testis In females, germ cell tumors account for 30% of ovarian tumors, but only 1 to 3% of ovarian cancers in North America. (wikipedia.org)
  • Squamous
  • Neoplasms, such as metastatic squamous cell carcinoma to the submandibular lymph nodes or a salivary gland tumour, could create a similar appearance but rarely have such well defined borders and can usually be palpated in the floor of the mouth or submandibular triangle of the neck as a hard mass. (wikipedia.org)
  • mucosa
  • The clinician will place a fiber-optic probe designed to measure the polarized reflectance spectra over the visible optical region on a site of interest in the subject's mouth, including lesional mucosa, normal adjacent and contralateral mucosa. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Its boundaries are: the mucosa of the floor of mouth and the tongue superiorly the mylohyoid muscle inferiorly the medial surface of the mandible anterolaterally the muscles along the base of the tongue (geniohyoid and genioglossus muscles) posteriorly medially, the intrinsic muscles of the tongue and genioglossus separate the two halves of the sublingual space. (wikipedia.org)
  • skin
  • Germline mutations in this gene have been associated with Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by the growth of polyps in the gastrointestinal tract, pigmented macules on the skin and mouth, and other neoplasms. (wikipedia.org)
  • The mucous membrane lining of the mouth is thinner than the skin, and easily damaged by mechanical, thermal (heat/cold), chemical, or electrical means, or by irradiation. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation
  • citation needed] Eating rough foods (e.g., crisps) can damage the lining of the mouth. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other examples include: Behcet's disease Bell's palsy Schizophrenia Tolosa-Hunt syndrome New daily persistent headache[medical citation needed] Sudden infant death syndrome[medical citation needed] Burning mouth syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • soft
  • Iatrogenic ulceration can also occur during dental treatment, when incidental abrasions to the soft tissues of the mouth are common. (wikipedia.org)
  • develop
  • If the wisdom teeth do not have an open connection to the mouth, pain can develop with the onset of inflammation or infection or damage to the adjacent teeth. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • An example of such a diagnosis is "fever of unknown origin": to explain the cause of elevated temperature the most common causes of unexplained fever (infection, neoplasm, or collagen vascular disease) must be ruled out. (wikipedia.org)
  • dentists
  • In this study the investigators are conducting research to determine whether a new optical device using polarization reflectance spectroscopy can help doctors or dentists identify abnormalities in the mouth that require follow-up. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • either
  • Some people cause damage inside their mouths themselves, either through an absentminded habit or as a type of deliberate self-harm (factitious ulceration). (wikipedia.org)
  • Play media All teeth are classified as either developing, erupted (into the mouth), embedded (failure to erupt despite lack of blockage from another tooth) or impacted. (wikipedia.org)
  • Type
  • The cemento-ossifying fibroma is hard and fibrous, most frequently seen in the jaw or mouth, sometimes in connection with a fracture or another type of injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • Accidental biting caused by a lack of awareness of painful stimuli in the mouth (e.g., following local anesthetic used during dental treatment) may cause ulceration which the person becomes aware of as the anesthetic wears off and the full sensation returns. (wikipedia.org)
  • floor
  • Short description: Mal neo mouth floor NOS. (icd9data.com)
  • Saliva from the sublingual gland drains through several small excretory ducts in the floor of the mouth. (wikipedia.org)
  • Signs and symptoms of a sublingual space infection might include a firm, painful swelling in the anterior part of the floor of the mouth. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscle
  • It is a potential space located below the mouth and above the mylohyoid muscle, and is part of the suprahyoid group of fascial spaces. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • Most patients present with a very rapidly growing mass that often gives a bluish appearance in the mouth. (wikipedia.org)
