Movable lump beneath central bottom teeth. What is it?

Hi, i am an 18 year old. I have noticed a lump beneath the skin of the floor of mouth right beneath the central bottom teeth. It seems like around 0.5cm and it is completely movable. I seem to have another on the right side but it seems smaller. It has been there for quite long i think, probably more than half a year but in still worried!

Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

Movable lump may have arised due to-periodontal infection or deep caries of associated tooth.

I would advice you to get a thorough clinical evaluation done.

Pus if present has to be drained and curretted.

Meanwhile,maintain oral hygiene well.

Antibiotics along with analgesics has to be administered.

Take care.
