I don't know how to upload a picture. I may have to have my children to do it. I just called the dentist and I have an appointment at 10:45 this morning. I will get back with you and try to get one of my children to upload a picture to you also

I went to the dentist , he said i have a blocked Salivary gland and for me to watch and return in one week unless it gets larger and then I need to see him sooner. Thank you for you input.

Harmless

Detailed Answer:
In fact that is what I had in mind. Your dentist seems right. The condition is otherwise harmless and you need not worry.
