The bumps on the outside of my mouth area can only be felt, don't show in a photo.
The few spots on the inside are very small, started out blueish, then red, now are disappearing -- but the bumps are still there.
My dentist's office is closed for 2 weeks -- I just want to know if this may be urgent, a sign of mouth cancer, etc.
If not, I'll relax and wait until I see the dentist.

Cancer is usually one singular white spot

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
