Can't tell: Could be, or maybe not. You need to see your family doc or perhaps an ENT specialist. If you use tobacco in any form or abuse alcohol, please quit today. Best to you.

Yes it can: if it does not go or if it gets bigger or if it bothers you- you would need to go to your doctor or dentist to get checked. then if it looks suspicious your MD or dentist can refer you to see oral surgeon for a biopsy.
