Torus Palatinus: Tori do not increase and decrease in size over time. They stay the same or may grow larger. Either it's not a torus or you just become more and less aware of it. It may get intermittently irritated. Regardless, have your General Dentist or an Oral Surgeon examine you for a definitive diagnosis and the answer to your question.
