Black spot in mouth
My wife found a small (2mm) spot on the inside of her cheek (in her mouth). It is not sore and does not hurt in anyway. She is a first year attorny and under a large amount of stress. Should we wait to see if it disappears or should she get it checked out? Obviously we are erroring on the side of getting her to the doctor.
