Drinking can lead to or contribute to several conditions leading to disease. Damage is abnormal or damaged tissue or organ. If your tongue is diseased, drinking may make them disappear. Liver damage indicates a more serious condition. If you have lesions in both places, you may have more than one condition. If you think you have a disease, please contact your doctor.

oral polycythemia is a rare oral mucosal lesion, a protective film in the mouth, which exists in the tongue, cheek and mouth. OE lesions are usually harmless, but may become cancerous. Real OE lesions are red and soft; however, OE lesions sometimes show white lesions, which may be caused by a different condition called leukoplakia. Smoking and long-term alcohol consumption are considered pathogenic factors; the exact cause of this situation is not yet clear. Drinking alcohol may increase the risk of cancer.
Leukoplakia is a disease characterized by white plaque thickening on the tongue, cheek, gum and bottom of mouth. You can't erase the damage easily. Typical lesions are benign, but they can also be cancerous. The reasons for this situation are not clear, but people believe that tobacco plays the greatest role in its development. However, alcohol is also thought to play a role. Avoiding alcohol and tobacco can make oral lesions disappear, but the Mayo Clinic recommends seeing a dentist if you find oral lesions. Dentists may need to remove leukoplakia. Fatty liver is the first stage of alcoholic liver disease. Fatty liver is characterized by liver lesions. Fatty deposits occur in areas 2 and 3 near the middle of the liver. Liver enlargement is within reach in 90% of patients with fatty liver. Fatty liver can occur within hours of drinking large amounts of alcohol. Fatty liver disease is reversible if you avoid drinking. However, diseases such as nonalcoholic liver disease and drug toxicity can also lead to the same abnormal fat deposition. Your doctor can tell the difference. < p > < H3 > alcoholic cirrhosis < / H3 > < p > liver lesions may occur during fatty liver or in the third stage of alcoholic liver disease: alcoholic cirrhosis. Although it is called the third stage, it does not always occur in a linear manner. These two stages may overlap, or some people with alcoholic liver disease will not develop alcoholic cirrhosis even if they continue to drink. Alcoholic cirrhosis is a common disease of the liver, which can lead to skin damage and other skin changes. Your skin is your biggest organ, but your liver is your second largest organ. Unlike fatty liver, alcoholic cirrhosis is irreversible.
