Leukoedema is usually found as an asymptomatic, greyish-white, diffuse, bilateral lesion in the buccal mucosa. The lesions do not rub off but disappear by stretching. The epithelium is thicker than normally. This oral condition is benign and commonly seen in the majority of the population. However it is supposed to occur more frequently in individuals who smoke or frequently ingest alcohol. No treatment is indicated.
