Hello
Thanks for your query. I examined the photo you have attached. There is nothing to panic about. It is most probably a mucocele or a salivary gland retention cyst. It needs to be excised under local anaesthesia. It is most probably due to low grade inflammation of your salivary glands. Cancerous lesions which one usually worries about are ulcerated and indurated lesions. Your pic does not suggest that. You can consult either a general surgeon or a dentist for excision after adequate examination.

Do not worry. Even herpes lesions are usually ulcerated and associated with other symptoms. Hence, it is just a mucocoele in all probability.
