Lump on upper gum

Common Questions and Answers about Lump on upper gum


Avatar m tn I have a little lump on my upper left gum behind my molar but further back than I imagine my wisdom tooth would be. It is painless and I am unable to move it with my tongue but if if push it with my finger it moves slightly with a little click. I have made an appointment to see the dentist but was worried so thought I'd ask your advise. You can not see the lump just feel it.
Avatar n tn i have had a big white lump on my inner upper left its hard as stone and hurts to swollow and eat unless soft foods
Avatar n tn Hello -- I have a hard lump underneath a tooth that I got a root canal on. It is under the gum; feels like bone; and does not feel like it is growing. It is also somewhat smooth, as far as I can tell. It does hurt every once in a while, but not too bad. It doesn't seem like it is a big deal...but strange none the less....what do you think that this could be?
Avatar n tn i have a hard slightly painful lump in my upper gum under my cheek bone im not to sure how long its been there for but it is worrying me.
Avatar f tn I have a lump on my upper gum for the last month. I had a crown removed three weeks ago. I've taken pencillian twice already. The pain and the lump is still there. When I press on it it hurts a lot. I cannot eat on that side. My Dentist took a couple of x-rays back then and gave me pencillian. Nothing has changed. Recently I notice a dark circle on the upper roof of that side. I touched it and it hurts. It has not grown in size..What to do next?
Avatar n tn I have found a small (about 3 mm) fleshy white-pink lesion where the cheek tissue meets my gums on the upper right side. The area feels slightly raised when i touch it with my tongue. I found it after looking because I started having pain there, I'm pretty sure the pain started suddenly about a few days ago. The pain is confined only to the surface and there are no other symptoms. Does this sound typical of a cancerous lesion? Should I relax for a week to see if it goes away?
Avatar f tn I have a hard painful lump on my upper, cheek side, gum. It is about 4 teeth wide and almost all the way up. It doesn't hurt all the time but mostly when I chew. It also has a littler color than the rest of my mouth. I have never really had any problems with my teeth before but once had a filling about 5 years ago. I'm not sure if it is something serious and worth consulting my dentist about.
Avatar n tn I have noticed a small cluster of discolored white bumps (the size of small dots) on my upper gum above my canine or lateral incisor. It is generally painless and doesn't seem to grow in size since i've noticed it a couple months ago. Recently, i have been brushing over it. The white spots remain and nothing really happens to physical appearance of the spots when I brush over it. However, the brushing leads to a very odd sensation like a tingling and a slightly frigid feeling.
Avatar f tn I have a lump on my upper gum between the lip and gum, it feels fleshy from inside my mouth but hard when pressing on the outside of my lip, not painful. My allergies are really flaring right now especially the left side which is where this lump is located, Yesterday I was blowing my nose all day and sneezing today I am having the PND, have pain and pressure around the cheekbone . I can move the lump downwards and a little sideway, even feels different when I lay down.
Avatar f tn A related discussion, painful lump on gum was started.
202827 tn?1238014289 I have a hard, bony, round, white colored swelling on my right upper gum above the molar on the inner side. It has been there for almost two years now. I showed it to a dentist as I am a heavy smoker and was worried about cancer but he just disregarded it. That was a year ago. On some days it feels less swollen when I rub my tongue over it, but of late I am feeling a pressure sensation all the way up my right nostril and sometimes above my right eye. What could this possibly be?
Avatar n tn A few suggestions I have recieved have believed it to be a clogged salivary gland. The fact that this is on my upper, outer gum leads me to believe it is not in fact a Mucocele, as those are common on the roof of the mouth, under the tongue, and on the bottom lip / possibly cheek, etc. Mine is above my very last tooth on the right side on the top.. it wouldn't make sense for it to be there I don't think.
Avatar m tn I would imagine that the gum would come up on one of those. Also, a last resort would be a bronchoscopy. This might reveal if the gum is stuck in the airway somewhere and if found, they would be able to remove it during this procedure also. May I ask how old you are? An SPO2 of 85% is not normal on CPAP in a person with no previous or current (diagnosed) lung issues.
Avatar n tn That was two weeks ago and i think everything is ok apart from i have noticed a large hard lump on the side of my gum in the fleshy area at the back of my mouth. The lump is sore to the touch or if i knock it with my tooth brush, or if i move my mouth aggresively and it rubs my cheek.
Avatar n tn The pain is not as sever but now I am noticing a liquid filled lump where the gum is swollen between the two back molars on the outside of the lower gum. Have you ever seen this? What is it? What is the cause and what is the cure? Thank you so much for your help!
Avatar f tn have upper dentures. ulcer appeared on upper right gum above canine about 6 weeks ago. ulcer got worse & now theres an infected movable lump a little bigger then a pea inside the ulcer with discharge & pain.
Avatar m tn I have a tiny pin size hole with white around it on my upper lip and it is painful when I touch it with my tongue or just my finger, I had to go to the dentist like three weeks ago and have my gums deep cleaned because I had a gum disease, thats about when it appeared along with two canker sores inside my mouth. The canker sore went away but this pinsize hole isn't. What is it? How would I get it to go away? Also I have been using numbing gel to lessen the pain.
Avatar f tn i had root canal treatment done on my upper middle large tooth around twenty years ago, from time to time over the years i felt a little lump on my gum, never caused me pain. last sunday i woke up with a severe pain in this tooth, went to dentist on monday, who took an xray and said i had a abscess. he put me antibotics and gave me pain killers also, its now wed and my lips and gums are swollen, the pain has gone down a tiny bit but i still cant sleep with the pain.
Avatar n tn Still have small white spots of cheek, white patches on upper/lower lip. Throat still swollen, red and white patches - not sore though. I still got the lumps on neck and chin, tired a lot of the time. Hope to have ultrasound on neck end of April - got to ring ENT dept next week to see when my appointment will be.
Avatar m tn This made me feel a lot better until I noticed a number of clusters of small white lumps on my upper gums, they're not very white, more the same color as the surrounding area, but they seem to cover the area above one tooth and there is a single on in the middle gum between the two upper front teeth. Is this something to worry about.
Avatar f tn In 2008 I developed a lump on the right upper gum and my dentist back then gave me five different prescriptions for Penicillin. None of them helped. Since the lump didn't hurt and grew very slowly, I left this dentist and with time forgot about this problem. In August of 2011 the lump suddenly became sensitive and I decided to finally seek treatment.
Avatar n tn I am curious to learn what you find out. I have a similar sensation of a lump or sore throat on only one side for a year. This is accompanied by intermittent pain in my lower jaw and ear pain. I had my submandibular gland removed but the feeling persists. Multiple dentist and ENT evaluations have been negative for abscess but I can't shake the feeling that there may be one below one of my two back molars.
Avatar n tn I have the same problem. I have a huge lump on my right labia and it is VERY painful. I am not sure what to do at this point. I've had one years ago in the same spot and under my right armpit. I went to the emergency room and they called the one under my arm hair folliculitis. Now, I am headed back to the emergency room tonight to find out what this is and see if they can put me under local anesthesia to get rid of it. I can not go to school like this.
Avatar f tn he took his little mirror and looked at the roof of his mouth and ordered xrays (yes he did ahve a cavity) he also had a huge lump on his roof of his mouth. he said it was an abscess and that it needs to be dealt with. Chris lost his 4 upper teeth due to the abscess(they think it was from one of the times he was on a ventalator and that is why he wouldn't let us brush his teeth. I would give her dentist a call first thing monday morning.
