Intermittent swelling in bumps under bottom teeth that occasionally turn white. Oral cancer?

I have two bumps that swell at times right under my bottom teeth . Sometimes they turn white. Is there any explanation besides oral cancer? This has been going on for years; but as I said, they only come up and turn white once in awhile. Could this be oral cancer? I have seen one photo where it was. Am just curious...Could it be something else?

impacted tooth may be a cause. many time dentigenous cyst may also give similar feature. you should do a OPG.(x-ray of oral cavity). cancer is not the usual diagnosis in your case. oral leukoplakia may be associated but this is to be examined. in case of any query you have to take a biopsy also.consult your surgeon.
