Dark red bubble inside of my left cheek, how to get rid of it ?

There is this BIG dark red bubble on the inside of my left cheek. It appeared out of nowhere about 35 minutes ago and it's grown in size in the last ten. It doesn't hurt but it looks like it's a bubble of blood. I think it's a broken blood vessel but I'm not sure. What is it and what should I do ? Is this serious enough for me to have to go to the hospital? -Katrina
