I know this conversation was started over a year ago, but was wondering about your outcome @elizabethbryant ? 3 years ago I was also diagnosed with severe dysplasia on the outer and lower-right side of my oral tongue. My first procedure was a partial glossectomy. May 1st of this year I was diagnosed with mild dysplasia and reactive leukoplakia, and underwent laser ablation to remove it all from the same area of the tongue as before. Just this morning, I had my 3 month post-surgery follow up and have developed additional mild dysplasia. I do not smoke or do drugs. I drink socially, about twice per month. I am a type 1 Diabetic. They can't tell me why it's happening yet. Doctor said we just gotta find the trigger and change it. Until then, I guess the plan is to keep removing pieces of my tongue. No action on the newest formation yet. I go back to check the progression in another 3 months. I sincerely hope you had a positive outcome from the treatment(s) you received.
