Hi Teresa,

If you can upload/attach a photo it would help in the diagnosis.

You can use this link for instructions: http://ww2.justanswer.com/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert .

You can use the "PAPER CLIP ICON" , or you can also use a photo hosting site like http://imgur.com/ and then paste the url in your answer.

Thanks.

Hi Teresa, I believe I see the area you are talking about. It appears to be slightly raised if I am looking at the right spot. However, you will be happy to know that everything in the photo is perfectly normal. You will get white spots, raised areas, slight bumps, etc. that are just minor salivary glands that clog with debris and become obvious to you but they are completely harmless. Some will disappear completely and some never will but that is no cause for concern because everyone has them and as you age you will see more of them and they can be even more pronounced. You only need to be concerned if you get ulcers, swellings, red irregular borders, etc. that do not disappear in 2 weeks but yours is nothing like that. So, you are good to go with no worries. Hope this helps. Please remember to accept our conversation so that I get credit for responding. Thanks and have a great week!.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
