In brief: Ranula or mucocle

Are the most common cause.
The difference is mainly size, the ranula being larger (looks like the belly of a frog? Hence the name). What they are are blocked salivary gland ducts. The lump is the build up of fluid. They can be a one time event or continually reoccur. They can even reoccur after surgical removeal.

I agree with Dr. Pope, but this should still be examined to rule out anything more serious.

In brief: Lump in mouth

See a dentist or an ENT specialist as soon as possible.
Any lump in your mouth is not normal and needs to be evaluated.
