Lump Under Gum

I'll cut right to the chase. I am a 17 year old male, non-smoker. at the location of my 2nd premolar right below the gum line, but above the floor of the mouth, i have a lump the size of a BB under the skin. It is hard, yet I can push it with my tongue and it will move around, sort of like theres a BB pellet rolling around under the skin. No discoloration, no pain, no bleeding etc. Is it safe to say that these symptoms dont match significantly with those of oral cancer? I am aware that most lumps in the mouth that move around are noncancerous. Any ideas what it is? been there for about 2 months, no noticable increase in size.

Re: Lump Under Gum

Get a dentist to check it out. Sounds like it could be pyorhea, which is not cancer, but can cause you a lot of pain and trouble.

Re: Lump Under Gum

so the fact that it is freely movable would suggest that it is likely to be noncancerous correct? just trying to see if from what im explaining, it does not seem cancerous. any input?
