Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome.
Thanks for sharing your concern.

After going through the history and photographs, of the lesion posted here.It appears to be a viral infection.But it could be a Mucocoel,a pharyngitis or a sexually transmitted disease too.Since you have not mentioned about its onset,I would require following details to suggest better in this regard.Please answer them.
1.Since when do you have these bumps in your mouth?
2.Did you ever had them before,even one or two bumps?Are you on any medication presently?
3.Do you have history of exposure or intimate relationship?
4.Do you have these lesions anywhere else in any body parts too?
5.Do you have any habits?

Awaiting response.
Thanks.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
visit to ENT specialist

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome.
Thanks for reply.

Please do not get worried it appears to be viral infection. You must see your ENT specialist and get prescribed for an antiviral course.

Do not stress yourself, viral has its own course and it should heal.

Please maintain good oral hygiene and do warm saline rinses twice daily. Take plenty of fluids and nutritious diet. Avoid lip biting or cheek biting as it can aggravate the symptoms.

Let me know for further doubts.
Thanks.
Take care.

Have had a small little flap inside my cheek for about 4 days, I can move it up and down with my tongue . White spot on the tip of it, looks a canker sore. Hurts slightly, not so bad, and the pain has gone down a bit over the few days, but the flap still remains. If memory serves me correctly I remember having something like this in the past and it going away. Should I go see a doctor about this or is it something that will go away?

Hi. Yesterday i began to feel that my lower right gum behind my last molar (where my wisdom tooth would be, but i had them removed 10 years ago) began to feel swollen and tender. If i opened my mouth wide, or squeeze my mouth shut tightly it hurts more, and when i chew on that side. It was smaller at first but grew and is now big enough that i can feel it against my tongue and upper gum. Nothing specific happened to it and it came very suddenly over the course of the night. I am in good health over all, brush regularly, have had very few dental problems in my life. I also have a sore thought at the moment but i dont know if that is connected at all. Any thoughts?
