my advise would be to stop treating ur self as a specialist an consult a dentist first who may refer u to a specialist according to ur condition ...seriously avoid any home remedies and make sure u dont try to scrap it of cause it may further complicate ur condition,,
it may just be a inflammed pappila to somethg as serious as a oral cancer
plz consult a dentist as soon as possible

It can be scraped  Iguess. Do consult a cosmetic or an ENT surgeon. They will help you.
