Recurring Bump on Roof of Mouth
For the past 2 months, I have had a recurring pimple sized bump on the top of my hard palate. Two dentists have examined with a panoramic x-ray. They are unsure and can’t see anything out of the ordinary. Basically it starts as what looks like a pimple, grows, then crusts, and then reduces to nothing or a marginal level. This has repeated in the exact same spot 4 times. I am seeing a specialist soon enough, but wanted some thoughts on what it could be. Thank-you
Unfortunately it is not possible to provide a diagnosis based upon this format. For persistent lesions, evaluation by a specialist such as oral surgeon or ENT (ear, nose, throat) physician is appropriate.
