I have a bump on the top of my mouth. I have had it before but it has now been there for two days. When I got it in the past it in the past it was in the same exact place. What could it be?

I have a bump on the top of my mouth. I have had it before but it has now been there for two days. When I got it in the past it in the past it was in the same exact place. What could it be?

There: There are many reasons for bumps in the mouth. These could range from minor irritations to tumors.
Some bumps may be associated with blocked minor salivary glands, which may wax and wane in size without any associated symptoms. These may occur throughout the mouth, including the hard palate, soft palate, inner lip (labial mucosa) and cheeck (buccal mucosa.)
local trauma may also cause bumps and lumps, and may even form benign tumors (fibromas, neurofibromas) these may also be asymptomatic, although pain, irritation, and sometimes bleeding may occur. These tend to resolve on there own.
Dental problems may cause swelling, usually closely associated with the tooth or gumline.
Less commonly, neoplasms (tumors - both benign and malignant) may occur in the mouth in different locations. Usually tumors do not wax and wane, and tend to continually grow, eventually causing pain, difficulty eating, swallowing, and sometimes bleeding.
It is imperative to have this bump checked by a qualified otolaryngologist or oral surgeon. I would make sure you get to see the doctor while it is present. A biopsy may also be recommended to confirm a diagnosis, but is not always necessary. ...Read more
