I have two little bump in my mouth and a longer sized bump on the side of my cheek . What could be the reason for this?

My name is Peter and I m only 17 and Ive been on and off dipping for about a year and i have a little bump or two in my mouth and like a longer sized bump that s skinny but long on the side of my cheek the two other ones are on my lower lip I got one looked at about a month ago and was told it is fine and that it was a saliva gland that was enlarged or something like that. I also have a dentist appointment coming up in about a week. should I wait till then to see if they notice anything? or should i go back to my doctor and get the rest of this checked out? I am not sure if I m just paranoid or if its really serious.

This can be a blocked minor salivary gland causing a mucocele (collection of saliva). It is harmless. Just for the sake of peace of mind, you can get it evaluated.

Avoid tobacco products, it causes more harm than doing anything good.
