Assuming that this is a solitary lesion and not multiple, it is probably due to trauma and is not serious. It is referred to as a hemorrhagic bleb. It will heal on its own.
If you have multiple lesions, it may be more serious (submucosal hemorrhage) and would need to be evaluated. ...Read more

This will stop the bleeding and remove the blood bubble. If concerned call the surgeon. ...Read more
