hello & welcome
on the basis of symptoms you are presenting here this could be a mucocele.
Mucocele is a fluid filled cyst usually occur under the tongue because of blocked secretory glands & get bursted without any pain. The fluid released may cause sticky feeling.
no treatment require for this unless until you feel pain or area get infected, this cyst may reoccur very frequently.
you have to maintain adequate oral hygiene with 0.12% chlorhexidine mouthwash and warm saline rinses.
