In brief: Papule

A papule or swollen raied area inside the cheek may represent a gland that has been pinched off or a duct that has been pinched off depending on where it is, it may just be a simple closed duct or the beginning of an infection in the salivary or parotid gland.
Conservative management with salt water gargles unless you have fever, chills, sweats or pain or swelling of the cheek or a gland.
