Bumps in mouth: Are the bumps bothersome and painful probably nothing to worry about. Did you eat something that was hot ? You could have burnt you mouth. If it is persistent check with your doctor and be sure it is nothing. It sounds like nothing to worry about. But just be sure by having someone look.At it. Feel better! good luck.

Imagination: Probably not your imagination. All kinds of things cause, bumps, lumps, swelling, pain, in the mouth, too numerous to list here. See your General Dentist, an Oral Surgeon, your General Physician, or an ENT Specialist to have the lesions examined and diagnosed. Only with an accurate diagnosis can th appropriate treatment plan be established.
