Thanks for your query.

It could be a tortuous vein (dilated), such veins occur either due to trauma or inflammation.The dilated vein can burst open bleeding into the oral cavity.

There would be no serious danger due to the vein but getting it excised would be a better idea.

Do consult an ENT (Ear Nose throat ) specialist who after examining can plan on excising the lesion.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
