What causes bubble of blood on palate?

hi doctor I was eating normal food as regular all of sudden i notice that on my palete there was a tiny bubble of blood but within a minute at was gone bigger and bigger ie.double the size of cherry and it was difficult to breath and i rushed to the Immergency .On the to hospital the bubble was brust and i feel a relief to breath properly where my blood was checked and it was a normal. GP said that it is new to them and i was very disappointed . I think it is a life threating symptom. I am sot sure whether it is due to allerery or blood irritation. What to eat and what to avoid I am in dilemma so I want to see the consultant can you advise me in this regard

Hi,

It is rare to have fast spreading blood bubble on palate that is causing breathing problem and getting relief on rupture of the bubble.
The commonest causes I can think about are as follows:
Patient on blood thinners like Aspirin low dose, clopidogrel can develop such fast spreading hematoma on minor injury which can be caused by something sharp or hard in food you ate.
Bleeding in a cyst or cancerous growth.
Severe allergy like anaphylaxis or angio-neurotic edema.
I would advise the following in such a situation:
Urgent care at ER or nearby hospital.
Steroids and antihistamine.
Anti-inflammatory medicines only if indicated and the bleeding profile is normal.
Find out other causes and avoid these altogether; so have to have soft diet only.
Further investigations of blood, local like CT scan as would be needed after clinical evaluation and examination.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. T. Chandrakant, General Surgeon
