Bump in mouth with red vein sticking out. What could it be?

I have had a bump in my mouth on the top right side for almost two years at first there was a lot of pain but it went away after a week or two I did go to the dentist but at that time there was a cold sore over the bump so they didn t look twice they said the veins in my tooth were dead but yet I still could feel pain when cold or hot air touched it so they told me to go to a specialist but I couldn t because my insurance ran out so now today there is a creepy weird red veiny looking thing sticking out of the bump. What do you have in mind of why it might be?

Thanks for asking.

It can be ranula.

A ranula is a type of mucocele found on the floor of the mouth. Ranulas present as a swelling of connective tissue consisting of collected mucin from a ruptured salivary gland duct, which is usually caused by local trauma. If they are small and not problematic, then they are left alone, but otherwise minor oral surgery may be required (usually removal of the sublingual gland).

Hope it helps.
