I have a tiny, hard, white, painful lump on the roof of my mouth near my throat. I've never smoked but have bad acid reflux. Could it be from that?

Painful lump: It is impossible to diagnose without a visual examination. Any lesion or lump that lasts longer than 10 days should be examined. If it is painful, it should be examined ASAP. See your dentist or an oral surgeon. ...Read more

Sometimes food or your toothbrush can scrap the tender tissue stretching over the tori causing pain. Rinse with warm salt water. You need to see a dentist to make sure you do not have a palatal abcess due to an infected tooth or less likely oral cancer. ...Read more

Evaluation: Without seeing the lesion it is hard to know exactly but a few things come to mind. A lump in the roof of the mouth could be a torus palitinus, median palatine cyst, palatal abscess or a tumor. See an ENT or oral surgeon for evaluation. ...Read more
