Intussusception (invagination)

Intussusception is a rare but serious disorder in which part of the intestine — either the small intestine or colon — slides into another part of the intestine.

The small, shallow lesions that develop on the soft tissues in the mouth at the base of the gums, inside the cheeks or lips, and under the tongue are referred to as canker sores or aphthous ulcers.
