PATHOLOGIC QUIZ CASE 1  Robert E. Fechner, MD, HoustonA 32-year-old man had a painful lesion on his tongue for four months. He did not think it had changed in size. On physical examination a raised, firm, slightly tender 1-cm mass was palpable on the lateral aspect of the posterior portion of his tongue. The mucosa over the tumor was intact. No other lesions were present in the oral cavity and there was no cervical adenopathy.
