See Dentist ASAP: See your Dentist as soon as you can for examination, diagnosis and treatment. The swollen node could be from many things, not necessarily related to the mouth conditions. Gum tissue coloration varies and may be something more noticeable due to the recession or a calculus buildup. Palatal bumps could be from a number of things, as well. See the Dentist and get this resolved so you can not worry. ...Read more

Palatal bumps?: It could be a host of possibilities. Without seeing it in person, it's hard to say and only a guess. Irritation from food and inflammation from smoking would be my first two guesses. Have your own dentist take a look at it and try to establish the exact cause in your case. ...Read more

I have a tooth ache and a very painful swollen bump on center of  the roof of my mouth. Do you have any ideas of possible cause and how to ease pain?

Possible infection: The most common reason for a painful swelling in the mouth is an infection. This is not something you can treat on your own. While antibiotics can help short term, unless the source of the infection is eliminated, it will keep returning. You need to see a dentist ASAP. ...Read more

Red raw sore on the roof of my mouth. Swollen red bumps on back of tongue and back sides of tongue and white spots on tonsils.

Infection: Sounds viral but may be bacterial. If you use tobacco, a palatal biopsy may be in order. Salt water gargles and topical anesthetic will help. A throat culture can help differentiate the etiology. See your physician. ...Read more

Do sinus problems cause bump on roof of mouth?

Not really: Is the bump hard or soft? If soft, it may be an infection from a non-vital tooth. If hard, it may be a torus. Either way, it needs to be examined to determine the cause and to have it treated, if necessary. See a local dentist for a consultation. ...Read more

Gum fistula: is a sign that there is chronic painless infection and your body is draining it out. Unlike some other types of infection, a chronic gum abscess will not get better on its own. See your dentist for definitive diagnosis and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
