Red bumps on soft palate, no pain. Anything to be concerned about?

I just came back from my dentist and was told that I should see an ENT or oral surgeon. She found these very tiny round red bumps on the soft palate and told me to have them checked out. They are not painful at all and I would never had noticed them if she didn t point them out. Do you think its anything to be concerned about?

Dentist 's  Response
hello & welcome to HCM,
I just went through your problem & it can be apthous ulcers.Common Causes can be:-
-Improper food habits like taking much of spicy food
-Gastric upset
-Stress problem
-Hormonal changes
-Nutritional deficency
-Improper Oral hygiene
-Lastly if its reccuring then it can be due to some sharp cusp.

What all you need to do is improve her dietary habits like include more of green vegetables & less oily & spicy food.
Also start with Tenvit-Plus capsules along with application of some anaesthetic gel like dologel or Mucopain gel.
You can also go for tetracycline mouthwash.
All these will definitely help you out.

Take Care

Dentist Dr. Khushboo Bhatia's  Response
The bumps may be canker sores caused by high stress levels in the body or due to vitamin deficiency particularly of vitamin b12 or vitamin c. They are identified by a bright red spot around a white or yellow area. Canker sores are not a sign of cancer and are benign. They may be cured by rinsing regularly with an antiseptic mouthwash.
