Hello, I have a question...
Hello, I have a question regarding this bump /pimple on the roof of my mouth. In the last two weeks this is the second time getting it and last night I got one on the roof of my lip. After I eat it grows a bit and then goes away a few hours later. It isn’t too painful. I do admit I don’t floss and I’m working on my oral hygiene. I smoked hookah occasionally (once a month) but have recently stopped completely. I also occasionally drank liquor but also brought that to stop. I also have high stress levels and anxiety. Any reason on what might be going on? Should I be worried?

What if it goes away and comes back? Keeps coming back?

Then it should be looked at more closely

might need a biopsy

How long should I wait? Because it completely goes away and then shows up. Just noticed this this month

give it another 2 weeks

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
If this one doesn’t heal within two weeks or if it comes back in two weeks? Also my father gets these episodes sometimes. Not sure if it’s genetic

It is probably hereditary yes

If it doesn't heal OR comes back in two weeks in the SAME spot only

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.
