white lump inside of mouth

Hi everyone

Am currently in pain from a white lump inside my mouth. it's on the left side of the inside of my cheeks towards the back of my mouth (beyond the molars). It looks sort of like a pimple with a whitehead and its about less than 1cm in size. It hurts everytime i puff my cheeks. I am definitely sure it's not an ulcer, it's too solid to be one.

i wonder if anyone has had the same problem or knows what it is exactly?

Re: white lump inside of mouth

Two things you need to do: first go to your dentist so you will
stop worrying and let him look at the inside of your cheek. The bump can be caused by biting this one area of the cheek
over and over and it becomes a cyst which is white and just
skin over skin. but these do not cause pain. Second, your
dentist should know about any new spots that occur in your
mouth that do not go away pain or not if they are red or white
The ADA has a test called the brush test that dentists can use
it they see something they are concerned about. the test is sent to a lab and the lab sends the results back to make sure
they are not precancerous cells....oral cancer is very prevelant
and not talked about much....go see your dentist!!!!!Karen

It sounds like a canker sore to me. Stay away from acidic foods for a bit (they make it more sore) and it will heal on its own, if that's what it is.
