Why do i have a hard lump on the roof of my mouth?

Can be many things

Teeth_brushing
See an oral surgeon. It can be a tori (extra bone), salivary gland lesion, fibroma, bony mass etc. Your oral surgeon will take xrays and maybe a ct scan. A biopsy procedure may also be recommended.

I have a hard lump on the roof of my mouth what should I do about it?

Anatomy

Head-mouth
Nothing. It is most likely nothing. The roof of our mouths is tissue that lines the inside of your skull. Almost all touching of the roof of your mouth should be hard with some ridges.

I have a swollen lump on the roof my mouth (hard palate), that is located evenly with the left side of my back teeth but over a little, painful.?

Palatal tori

Open-uri20121129-5500-3w47ht
It may be palatal tori, which is a normal overgrowth of bone on the roof of your mouth. 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.

Tiny hole at roof of mouth where hard palate ends, and soft palate begins. Is this normal?

Dental exam

Teeth
you should see a dentist for evaluation. A hole in that area of the palate is not normal and should be evaluated

I have a non painful red spot on the hard palate of the roof of my mouth. Could this be caused by trauma? Or something more serious

Yes it could.

Teeth_brushing
So, obviously we would need to get it examined ASAP. Without a photograph, it is impossible to give you any information that is relevant to you. Good luck!

Dr. John Scuba answered:

My hard palate is a little yellow and I've had cold symptoms for about a week. (Not tasting, stuffed up, etc.) Some small red patches on roof of mouth?

Mouth eruption

Head-mouth
Your symptoms seem viral in nature, and the patches may be a specific type. Upper respiratory illnesses such as sinus infection can present similarly with nasal stuffiness and diminished taste. Bacterial infection such as strep throat is not usually a palatal disease. However, mononucleosis is always a concern for a range of symptoms and can be tested for. An exam is in order if you don't improve

Dr. Gary F. Alder answered:

could lumps on the roof of my mouth be cancer?

Maybe

Cancer
80% of lesions (lumps) are benign but all must be investigated and most will need biopsy to determine the type of mass.
