| | hard lump on gum
I posted before about this, but I am really getting quite desperate for advice/help.
I have a hard lump about a quarter of an inch above one of my (unfilled) front teeth. It's the size of a pinhead although not completely round. It's white when pressed and only faintly visible when not. It's completely painless. I first noticed it two weeks ago and, although it could have been there for considerably longer, my thorough dental hygiene routine makes it unlikely that I wouldn't have noticed for very long.
I am unable to attend a dental or doctor's surgery; my doctor can come out to me but this is costly and still problematic. My main worry, however, is that he will tell me that I need tests which will take a great deal of trouble and time to arrange, since standard medical environments make me gravely ill and a slight error (such as using an antiseptic-covered implement) could potentially kill me.
What I'm looking for is calm and balanced ideas of what this thing might be; scaremongering I do not need! I am a very allergic person in general and I have lumps cropping up here and there on my body from time to time as a result of some unknown reaction(s). Has anyone had a similar experience?
Thanks in anticipation of any/all help
