Correct Answer Answer

B is correct.
Fibromas are overgrowths of connective tissue. In the oral cavity they occur as firm, well defined "lumps" of uniformly pink tissue. They are not usually bound down to any underlying tissue, so their movement is limited only by the overlying tissue. They generally grow to a particular size (most commonly a centimeter across or less) and then stop growing. They can remain unchanged for many, many years. They are either ignored or removed by an oral surgeon. They are totally harmless unless they interfere with normal functioning.
