I've had a bump on the roof of my mouth for 8 months, it hasn't changed, but recently the tissue around it swelled up overnight. Is this cancer?
Please see dentist: Yes/no....I do not like bumps anywhere in the mouth and the norm is that anything out of the "norm" should be evaluated. Cancer = low risk, palatal tori = most likely and harmless excess bone. Swelling might be due to dry tissie or trauma but I do not like the swelling for over 8mo and I would see my local dentist.
