Question black dot on inside cheek

I have been having problems with mouth and throat for over three weeks. Today I found a black dot on the inside of left cheek. I re-started using hte humidifier of the machine I used for my apnea at night last night, and the secretions on my throat (white) appeared more prominent this morning too).
Any suggestions? Could it be cancer?

Re: black dot on inside cheek

I think this is not the sign of cancer, this should be due to another reason.

Re: black dot on inside cheek

Could be a small blood blister. I've had them before and they can look black as the blood has been sitting inside for awhile.

You get these things from maybe biting inside your cheek or if something (food, toothbrush etc) nicks inside your cheek. Or it could just be a small cut that is healing that looks like a spot. Not saying cancer never ever presents with the colour black, but it's usually white or red

Re: black dot on inside cheek

agree with above, it sounds like a blood blister from biting the inside of your cheek. If you pull the skin away with a pin the blood blister will normally come out.
