Many possibilities: Can be from burn, chemical irritation, systemic disease, abrasions, and many other reasons. You need to be examined to be diagnosed and then treated. You must see your Dentist. Referral to Oral Surgeon may be indicated.

Swollen Palate: More information is needed to give a reasonable opinion. I would suggest a visit to your dentist to make a more complete and through diagnosis.

See your dentist: A swollen, painful roof of mouth can have several causes, including allergies, injury, tooth infection or underlying health issues. Your dentist will perform examination and tests on the sore to determine whether the sore is dangerous and what type of treatment might be necessary.
