Hard lump on roof of mouth!!!!!!!!
« on: August 26, 2007, 09:00:14 PM »
HEY GUYS! For about 3 weeks or so, I have noticed a hard painless lump on the roof of my mouth. I first noticed it because it was sore, but then the soreness went away after a few days. It is so hard it feels like a bone coming through the roof of my mouth! It is just on one side- now my glands are a little sore!! Of course, you know I am worried that I have oral cancer- even though I am only 25 and never a smoker! What could this be???????????? I put my symptoms in webmd and the only diagnosis was oral cancer- (i know I shouldn't have gone to webmd!!)

I think it's fairly common to have these little irregular lumps on the roof of your mouth. It's not a perfectly even surface for most people. I have one like you describe, and I've had it for maybe 10 years or so. I also noticed mine when that part of my mouth was sore one time.

It's possible a rough or sharp piece of food caused it too, which happens from time to time.

I worried about mine for months (thinking back, it must have been one of my first real health anxiety worries!).

Try not to worry yourself about it.

It's probably nothing, just a remnant from an infection you had(you mentioned it was sore at first).

I have this as well, I think in my case its just an imperfection and has been there forever. In your case it sounds like it could be a canker sore or an impacted salivary gland. Both are annoying but pretty much harmless. Also maybe you could have burned it on a hot food or beverage and just don't remember.

I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

"it feels like a bone coming through the roof of my mouth"

actually it could be bone. I have this small hard thing in root of my mouth, I noticed it because it was sore for some reason, freaked out, ran to the dentist. He just laughed.lol. it was just part of the chin bone. it`s still there...
