If it grows every day for 5 days or more, or if it doesn't disappear in 10 days, you should visit your doctor. Usually these just disappear in a short period of time. Try dissolving a teaspoon of table salt in warm (soup temp) tap water and swish it inside your mouth for 5 minutes twice daily x 5 days. ...Read more

Why is my skin peeling off inside the mouth on the cheeks? And have small pimple like bumps on the cheeks that give out salt like fluid when pierced?

On my cheeks: You may be unconsciously biting your cheeks which also irritate minor salivary glands where the ducts get blocked and cause the formation of mucoceles (mucous retention cysts) that are harmless. However, we cannot diagnose this over the internet, sight unseen. You will need to see a dentist to confirm my suspicions as there are other possibilities, some of which require treatment. ...Read more

Hello I have a reddish, pink swollen and semi -painful bump on the inside of my mouth near the middle to upper part of the inside of my cheek. Cancer?

Bit the inside of my cheek a couple times and now have a small bump that is dark red/black; is this just dried blood? Feels like a pimple

Bit the inside of my cheek a couple times and now have a small bump that is dark red/black; is this just dried blood? Feels like a pimple

Most likely: It's dried blood or a blood blister from repeated bites. It happens all the time with sores on our tongues & cheeks. We bite them once then keep biting them since they protrude slightly. Slow down when eating, be extra careful & it should heal in 2-3 days. If you keep biting it or it stays a problem see your dentist. They may be able to grind a small amount of 1-2 teeth to help you stop biting. ...Read more

I have a small bump of some sort on the inside of my cheek that burns when I drink some stuff and when I dip had dentist look 2 monthsagowasntworried?

Burning bump: First, whatever you do, stop dipping. That causes oral cancers, plain & simple. It might not mean anything to you now, but in coming years if you were told that you had cancer, it would! Secondly, without actually examining you personally, we can't diagnose lesions such as this. Obviously, something is just not right. If you can't get an answer that makes sense to you, consult with an oral surgeon. ...Read more
