Bumps on gums in mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on gums in mouth


I have white bumps on my gums I have been looking up gum disease and periodontitis and I think I have perioddontitis I have two of them on my upper gums one on the left and one on the right but the one on my left seems like it went down and is flat like now but is still white now the one on my right is still there and I can't tell if it got slightly bigger or is still the same though.
Anyways 3-4 mo, maybe sooner, maybe later, can't remember, I have had little bumps appear in my mouth in various spots. I have very tiny white bumps on my bottom, front, lower gums. Some are there now, some have gone. On one incident, I believe before menstruation, I had several whitish, bigger bumps appear on my inner bottom left gum next to the molars that lasted for around a couple weeks. Maybe less.
Sexually transmitted diseases, cancer and allergic reactions are some medical conditions that can present symptoms of white bumps on the lips. One common cause for white bumps on tongue is yeast infection. In this condition white bumps may appear more like white patches that are painful when touched. White little bumps can also be caused by an inflammatory condition called oral lichen planus.
The possible causes of your symptoms are oral thrush which is an overgrowth of yeast in the mouth causing white spots to occur on the tongue, gums, roof of the mouth and the inside of the cheeks. It is usually seen in people with poor nutrition, who use inhaled steroids or are taking antibiotics and individuals with suppressed immune systems. White patches can also be due to a condition called leucoplakia seen usually in those with weak immune system. It is best to get these bumps examined.
Several months ago I noticed bumps were forming in my lower gums behind my teeth in front of my tongue. First, there was just a raised rough patch. It's sharp feeling and kind of bony. On one side there is a teeny tiny bump almost ball shaped with a bigger hard bump next to it. I can't move it around. On the other side the there is another large bump that I also can't move around. There is no change in color and are only painful when I tend to irritate it with my tongue.
Just thought I'd post the findings in case someone sees a similar condition on their gums. The hygienist said it is probably nothing and that small inconsistencies can occasionally occur in the gums. The dentist confirmed that there was nothing to worry about. Neither gave me a dental name or cause for this, though. Also I noticed if you find pictures of "healthy gums" online, if you look closely you might be able to find tiny bumps like the ones I was worried about.
It may be that you were just holding something very acidic or sweet (like chocolate) in the area of your mouth and it irritated your gums, but again, if they aren't gone in a few day, make that appt and find out for sure.
if i've had a few white bumps on my gums, but they aren't open, and i've had them for a while, do you think it might be herpes?
for the last few weeks i have been getting bumps on my gums on top of my left tooth. frist it time i got one was in august of 2007. It hurt really bad and it was big it grew in just a few hours. then the next day it had a white head and it hurted really bad. I looked at it in a mirror and i put pressure on it and it busted!! Nasty it was a lot of pus came out. It even hurted so i put some orjel on it. I went away but a couple of hours.
Obviously the use of dip increases your risk for oral cancer just like smoking does. Generally oral cancer from dip is on the lower lip due to the placement of the dip in that area but it doesn't rule out cancer until the specialist has biopsied it. Generally cancer with dip would have more of a white appearance than a red one. Can you describe it in more detail? Is it round or elongated? Is it flat or does it bump out? What color is it?
It's more like a small raised area of tougher skin with little tiny bumps on it. You can barely see it but I can certainly feel it with my tongue. I switched toothpaste and to a softer brush. Same thing this morning, no change. I plan to go to a dentist asap but it is a holiday weekend so I have to wait.
I have these bumps in my mouth for a couple of days and they are not very painful but they are very very hard and there are two right next to eachother. I am worried about mouth cancer but i don't know if this is possible, i don't know what to think. They are located on the left side of my mouth, on the lip, right where the teeth meet the gums. If you could tell me what it might be that would be great, thanks. I am not a smoker but i have had a couple of cigars and tried chew ONE time.
for the first time in so long, i was free of these sore spots that cover my mouth. i am now on day 9 of itraconazole. it looks like the bumps on the base of my tongue are back and the white rings are starting to spread down the lateral edge of my tongue again. i will take my 10th and final dose of itraconazole tomorrow. I have another 10 day course of fluconazole that i will try to take after this to see if i can finally beat this thing.
If I run my finger over the group of knots, they extend from slightly past the front of the mouth all the length to where my teeth are in the back of my mouth on both upper sides......they are not present directly in front of the mouth above the front five teeth or so. They are not present in the lower gum area at all.....which feels smooth and consistent. They can only be seen when I peel back the upper lip area, and if I run my finger across them there is a slight degree of discomfort....
On Monday I cut my gum while eating. By early Tuesday morning my gums were very swollen and I had swollen glands in my neck. I started running a low fever and having body aches. I also developed a sore throat. On Thursday I got a painful white bump on my tongue. By the end of the day I had two more. It is now Saturday and I have even more bumps. I went to the DR on Thursday. I tested negative for strep. He said it sounded Bacterial and gave me Amoxicillin of which I have now taken 5 doses.

Yesterday I had 2 bumps on the inside of my mouth. I popped the one on the my inner lower lip and it is now a sore. I also had a hard bump on the roof of my mouth that today is also a sore. Any idea what this could be?
Hi I'm a 21 year old male and the last month and a half I'ne voticed two white bumps in my mouth. They are right above the tonsils, on what may be the soft palate lining. They don't affect me in any way other than they are there. I can push on them with my tongue, and it feels like my mouth is making like a little popping sound when I do. It's not painful to the tongue at all, and a little painful if I push in with my finger.
Oral thrush is an overgrowth of yeast in the mouth causing white spots to occur on the tongue, gums, roof of the mouth and the inside of the cheeks. There is also a possibility of mucocele or possible salivary stones. It is best to get these bumps examined. Treatment depends on the cause. I hope it helps. Best luck and regards.
I often get them on the under side of my tongue. I have a bump very similar to that on the roof of my mouth in the back. I just ate garlic bread, so I'm wondering if these bumps can also occur on the roof of your mouth? I mean I literally just noticed it. It doesn't hurt though it does look a little red around the bump.
About 3 weeks ago, I noticed some small white spots / bumps appearing on my gums. I have decent oral hygeiene (visits onc per year and very few cavitites), and it has me scared to death when I see web info about mouth sots being related to cancer and AIDS. Please help.

As my gums have been hurting for the past few days on the inside bottom in the front I decided to take a look in the mirror today and I noticed on both sides on the bottom of my mouth white hard bumps - they appear to be a part of my gum line and look like bone - however I do not remember ever seeing this before. The only thing that looks weird about it is that they both start at three teeth from the back and stop before the first front bottom 3 or 4 teeth.
didnt think anything of it until last night when i just happened to be biting my nail (not a habit) and felt my gums. to my horror they were terribly swollen. in the mirror they look like huge bumps. one big lump per each tooth's corresponding gum area. not on the gum line but further up, closer to where the cheek attaches to the mouth. they are hard and appear above the molars just after the canines.
my 2 year son has not ate in 6 days, although i have been able to get some ensure health shake down him, but my concerns are he started out with a fever which has gone away, and what looks to be 2 fever blisters one on each lip. later i noticed that he has what appears to be several "lie bumps" all over his tounge. Now his gums are very swollen and bleeds when he bumps his mouth or barley touches his gums.
I developed a series of bumps down the back of my throat, as well as some on the corners of my mouth near my molars (not on the gums.) There is also a bit of inflammation on the upper right hand corner of my mouth. The bumps are pinkish in appearance and range from about a cm in diameter to less, that run down my throat connected by veins. I have had these for two months. I have been diagnosed with a sinus infection which I took amoxicillin for, and did nothing.
I used to have issues with my lips when i was younger, they got very red for a while and the corner sof my mouth would constantly split and have a sore on each side. Now one sore is back on the left side of my mouth where my top and bottom lip connect. If i open my mouth too wide it tears and hurts. This is a new problem but it seems to be happening around the same time that all of the other things are happening.

On the skin, it produces a reddish-purple, itchy rash with flat bumps or a white, lacy appearance. In the mouth, it can produce a burning sensation, sore gums, tenderness when eating or toothbrushing and a metallic taste. Lichen planus isn't communicable. Theories about the cause of the disease propose it is an allergic or autoimmune response. Those with hepatitis C are at increased risk for contracting lichen planus.
