Harmless Mucocele: Usually they're not a problem and will go away on their own. If concerned see your dentist for examination and removal if needed. On a different note, chewing tobacco has associated risks of oral cancers, gum disease, tooth decay and other general health problems. Ask your PCP for help to quit.
