@dablues I can certainly understand your concern, especially since you have had such a difficult year. It's important that you seek medical care and it sounds like you will be seeing your dentist Monday.

@dablues you are concerned the sores in your mouth are from AVM, but you have also adjusted your dentures on your own.

What I'm hearing is that you are unsure if it's AVM or the sores are from your newly adjusted dentures. Am I correct?

@avmcbellar and @bobbiejo13 have recently discussed AVM and they may be able to help you with your question.

There are two past discussions on AVM and I have linked them below.

– Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) Survivors and side effects https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/arteriovenous-malformation-avm-survivors-and-side-effects/
– Strabismus due to ruptured AVM https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/strabismus-due-to-ruptured-avm/

As with any medical concern or question, it's best to first consult a provider.

Would you consider going to an urgent care or emergency room to be professionally evaluated?

I'm not sure if it is because of the dentures I adjusted but before adjusting I've been to the dentist with sores and one under the tongue and he didn't think anything was wrong. So I forgot about it until the purple thing in my cheeks started. Been rinsing with Epsom salts but I need to know if it is cancer or what. I look under my tongue and there are two spots, and the dentures are the culprit, the lower denture. But doctor never said anything, so this time even though I adjusted them I'm going to see what is going on. I'm tired of running to doctors. I have been having hoarseness off and on for a couple of months, so went to the ENT, he sent me to speech therapy, said he didn't find any tumors etc. Have had an endoscopy done probably last year and I do have acid reflux so am so sick of trying to figure out what is going on and I'm going in circles.
