Bumps on roof of my mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on roof of my mouth


Several days ago I noticed the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> was feeling a little numb, not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the surface, but underneath felt numb. Several days past, and it only grew worse so I peered in and took a picture. http://www.makewavesmedia.com/pics/10-26-2010-Day4-10pm.jpg I went to my doctor who didn't know what to make of it. He said it doesn't smell like yeast, and may be oral thrush, except that it was only contained to the small area right at the top. I guess thrushes normally spread all over.
Teeth and gums tingle, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> swollen, kind <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> like dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> (not thirsty though), tongue will not leave the swollen area alone. my dentist suggested trying biotene toothpaste and mouthwash for about two months to see if there is any improvement which I did and no improvement. I am going to call my dentist and tell her it did not work, but I thought I would write to see if you have heard of this and have any suggestions. Could it be allergies? I have not changed my way of eating.
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>on running <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> finger along the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span>, there is a hard, pea-sized lump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span>. If I open my mouth and look, it is not visible, and is located under the tissue. as this literally began to hurt an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan>in a matter of an hour or two, I am wondering if it's some sort of inflammation that will pass. the internet has provided few answers, and pointed me towards cancer: is it possible that cancer could start to bother me that quickly?
Hi-- I have a strange bump, pimple-like, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span>. It's pretty small, and in the mirror, it looks like a small bump, and it almost looks like there are maybe two other small bumps right by it, although I can't feel those an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> my tongue. I am a sexually active, usually healthy 26 year old. Is it possible that this bump is a symptom of an STD? Or is it more likely just to be some sort of small thing, or just a pimple?
the redness and pain is only located on one side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span>. the area also does not feel smooth like it normally feels an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> tongue. It feels like there are tiny little bumps. I'm not sure what this could be since I haven't done anything I could think of to aggravate the area and I haven't kissed anyone or had any kind of human contact an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan>in the area. I'm having the hardest time eating things, even rice because the area is so sensitive.
I saw my ENT doctor yesterday, but even before I went I noticed some small bumps on the roof of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span>. He said the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> was red too, and he prescribed a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> wash containing nystatin, benadryl, and hydrocortisone, to take 3 times a day. I have to see him again in 2 weeks. the mouthwash is very bitter but I don't mind if it works. I was an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> the whole night last night an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> the pain, didn't sleep a wink. I took 2 tylenol 3s at midnight, but they had no effect.
However I noticed that the front portion <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> had lost the normal pinkness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the rest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> had, it looks white. the skin is white color and goes back about an inch and then begins to 'freckle' back to pinkness. I've never noticed this before, the skin feels like it always has, it does not hurt, nor is there any bumps or sores, I don't smoke or drink or any thing. Is this something I should be worried about?
I have recently started to get other growths on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span>. I saw <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> dentist last week and discussed the new growth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> either side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the torus. He said that I dont need to be concerned. But just in the past 2 day 2 more bumps showed an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>. This time on the left side on the roof of my mouth one behind the other, between the torus and my molars. Please help me understand this. I feel lost and I am very scared. I have done a lot of research on this and cannot find any answers.
I have been getting these little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s or pimples in the back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> throat,the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my mouth and on the very back of my tongue. I have been to see two ENT's about this problem. one said it was my tonsills the other thought the same at first because I was coughing an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> little white nodules, but the nodules have disappeared about a year ago. I have no sore throat just these bumps that are driving me nuts. they seem to flair an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> worse about an hour after I eat dinner.
I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wokean> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan> this morning and noticed small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> tongue had a coan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>le bumps on it as well and was a whitish color. I washed off my tongue and it didnt bleed and it doesnt hurt most of the white stuff washed off. I was wondering what this could be???????
I looked into my mouth for other reasons (will post below, why)and in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> (soft pallet), saw very tiny, round, clear blister (like). I can take my finger and *easily* brush them off. I'm left an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> a clear, very sticky substance on my finger. these were not there yesterday. Why I looked into my mouth (C&amp;P from respiratory forum): 34 year old woman, tonsils recently tooken out. Radiologist called hypertrophied adenoids, ENT an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>on tonsil removal said he didn't see it.
I believe the pain is coming from the small red bump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> tongue and these colorless <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my mouth, that I discovered by stroking my tongue against it. When I apply pressure to the bumps an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> my tongue, I do not feel pain. my friend suggested that I might have burnt my mouth, but I don't recall ever burning it. I'm not sure this is related but in the past week I have been experiencing hot flashes, and have a right enlarged lymph node. I do not have a sore throat.
I can remove about 80% of it on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> lower lip and under <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> tongue. I can only remove about 10% <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> as it is too far back. I don't know if there is any connection but this started about 2 weeks after having some dental work done. I still have a cracked tooth but my dentist said that it is very small and if it doesn't bother me too much, to leave it for now. I've an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>loaded a coan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>le of pics. any ideas as to what this could be? Is it a type of yeast? Thanks.
I have been using nicotine gum to ease the transition. In the past coan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>le <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> months, I've noticed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s inside <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> lower lip. they are small yet visible, and I can feel them an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> my finger. also, my lip is a little swollen around the line that separates the bottom of the bottom lip from my face. I also notice the slight swelling in the mirror -- it is puffed out. I'm san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>posed to go to the dentist in June. Is this something that should be looked at sooner?
Hi there, a clinical examination is necessary for correct diagnosis and management. 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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> poor nutrition, who use inhaled steroids or are taking antibiotics and individuals an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>pressed immune systems.
Oral thrush is an overgrowth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> yeast in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> causing white spots to occur <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the tongue, gums, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> 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.
numbness of my lower right lip which I think gets paralized because it will not open when I smile or grin and liquids will dribble out that side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> if I try to drink. also pins and needles right foot and lower leg, and pain and numbness right hand and wrist. I have tried in vain to explain these symptoms to both the neurologists and neurosurgeon (very hard to do in a 5 minute consultation or over the phone) and both stated that they could not possibly be caused by this mass or cyst.
also a little more down, behind <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> tongue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the walls <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> throat, there are small yellow lumpy looking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s (as small as half a grain of rice). I've had a coan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>le girlfriends who i've kissed but all healthy. and once tried oral sex for about 1 minute (because i hated it). Please give me advice on what this can be and if it's normal. It worries me thinking it may be herpes or something (God forbid) :( Thank you VERY much in advance!
I am a 40 year old male. Had oral sex an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>withan> a woman about 3 weeks ago. Shortly afterwards (2-3 days) I developed a coan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>le of "sores" inside my mouth (cheek and roof of the mouth) and on the inside surface of my lip. I also developed an irritation around the eyes. the sores persisted. my MD tried antibiotics, anti-viral, and anti fungal (wasn't enough to culture - diagnosis by elimination).
I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bump</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the base <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> tongue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the lateral edge for some time. these bumps have white dots near them that expand into thing white rings. these bumps are most prominent at the base /back of my tongue. last year i went to my doc and told him i thought it was thrush, he didn't agree and told me it was nothing. at this time, i was tested for diabetes and hiv - both tests came back negative.
they then seem to scrape off by themselves simply by eating something. they are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span>, the inside of lower and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>upan>per lips, under my tongue and in my throat. It feels rough when I swallow. I've had many tests done, swabs looking for yeast, blood work (I'll list all if that would help) and helicobacter pylori test. all negative or in the normal range. Does anyone have any ideas as to what this could be? Thanks very much.
