I have found a hard little lump in the gum above my front tooth. My father had a malignant schwannoma, so I am worried that this lump could be malignant. The dentist took an xray and said it didn't reveal anything. He then said to not worry about lump. Today I went to my family doctor, he said that it was very unlikely to be malignant, he said to return to him if lump grows. I have photos, I will try to upload them. Thanks.
Hello again, thank you for your reply. There is definitely a little lump there, the dentist felt it. I will upload another photo, please tell me what you think:
Thanks, ***** ***** torus show on xray or would it be too small?
I do have strange little white vertical lines forming an arch in the gum above this tooth, is this the "irregular bone" you refer to? I will attach a photo. Most of this "white arch" feels smooth and flat, but my lump is the white area at the edge of this arch. I have drawn a line just above this arch.
