Bumps on roof of the mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Bumps on roof of the mouth


Today, I noticed several tiny <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my soft palate. They are the same size that one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> people get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> their tongue sometimes would be. They do not hurt. \ I was curious as to what the reason for them may be?
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> my <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.
I often get them <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the under side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my tongue. I have a bump very similar to that <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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> 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.
Upon running my finger along the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <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> my <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 within 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?
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.
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> my <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 with 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?
When ever I eat certain foods I get these sore and itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <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 near the back of my throat. Does that mean I'm allergic to what I'm eating or that what i was eating was more acidic than normal??
The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> is red and very painful. The redness and pain is only located <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> one side of the roof of my mouth. The area also does not feel smooth like it normally feels with my 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 within the area.
ps I've had pain in the roof of my mouth for a while and I know that a toothache can cause pain in the <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>. The pain in the tooth only developed a week ago. I feels like any other toothache I've ever had, especially the ones I've needed before having a root canal.
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> my <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> my <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?
Another possibility is that it may be a cyst which is a small pocket filled with fluid .Mucoceles are a harmless, common condition resulting from the collection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> clear fluid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the interior surface of the lip. See a doctor. Treatment will be specific based on the cause. Keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
This time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the left side <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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> 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 do not smoke or drink.
I have been getting these little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> or pimples in the back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my 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 up 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 up worse about an hour after I eat dinner.
I woke up this morning and noticed small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span>, my tongue had a couple 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 have a sore throat since last night, been taking over the counter yeast infection pills for the last couple days (AZO yeast). I looked in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> today and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> is yellowish, with a red area and white spots on the roof of my mouth. I do get cold sores, but never inside my mouth before. Really confused, plus I have a date tomorrow, and I have no insurance. What do I do? I have a picture!
I believe the pain is coming from the small red bump <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my tongue and these colorless <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> <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 with 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.
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.
mass along the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the third ventricle, posterior to the foramina <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> Monroe's which are slightly splayed by this lesion. It is isointense on T1, heterogenious on T2 with a very hypointense component and hypointense on FLAIR. The lateral ventricles are asymetrical, left larger than right but no frank hydrocephalus is appreciated. The small mass described above, probably with a hemorrhagic component, could reflect a subependymoma or an atypical colloid cyst.
I've had these little white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> under my tongue, <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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> towards the back and on the inside of my lower lip for about a year and a half. They do not hurt. They are uncomfortable as my mouth feels rough using my tongue. They just appeared one day. I have been going to many specialist in Vancouver over the past year and a half and have stumped them all so far.
Also, my lip is a little swollen around the line that separates the bottom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the bottom lip from my face. I also notice the slight swelling in the mirror -- it is puffed out. I'm supposed to go to the dentist in June. Is this something that should be looked at sooner?
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, <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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> 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.
I am a 40 year old male. Had oral sex with a woman about 3 weeks ago. Shortly afterwards (2-3 days) I developed a couple 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).
Also a little more down, behind my tongue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the walls <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my throat, there are small yellow lumpy looking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps</span> (as small as half a grain of rice). I've had a couple 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!
Also it feels like I have ate alot of sour candy and burnt the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> or like I have slept with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span> closed all night and had my toung stuck to the roof ofmy mouth. Please help me out.
After a few days and more pain and difficulty swallowing, I looked at my throat. I had about 10 ulcers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the back part <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> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mouth</span>. They looked like canker sores to me and went away after about 7-10 days of using magic pink mouth wash. At this time I noticed a bump in the center of the top of my tounge. This bump initially looked like a blood blister. It is red with purple in it. It is a little smaller than the top part of a pencil eraser (width)and does not stick up very high.
