it has similar symptoms of a canker sore, but i don't think it's white in the middle or red around it, like they say canker sores look. it's a hard bump on the left side of the roof of my mouth, more towards the back... and painful to touch, and i feel pain when i swallow. the pain just started today, and i don't know whether or not it was there before it was painful. i woke up today with a sore throat, and thought that might just be it, but then i realized it was this bump, or whatever it is. i'm hoping it's not some type of oral cancer, and that it is just a canker sore or something. i'm hoping the pain will go away, or at least subside, so then maybe i won't be so nervous.


if anyone has any ideas as to what this may be, please let me know.

im scared.

I'm not really sure since I can't see it but if it doesn't go away in a few days I would contact my doctor.

I have the exact bump, left side, painful to the touch, reading your description
was weirdly alike to my symptoms, woke
up with a sore throat noticed
the bump, does your sore throat come
and go throughout the day?

sjosephnyc here: Just got this diagnosed--mononucleosis. Many people get strep throat with this too, which is why you feel whatever these bumps are when you swallow.

Sorry all. Go to the doctor.
