For about 3 weeks, i've had what appears to be a small blister in my mouth, but its slightly harder, and its somewhat reddish but mostly white. I have actually bitten it out of frustration that it was there, and it bled (no pus that I could tell) a good bit until I put pressure on it for a couple minutes.

I have had plenty of canker sores. This isn't the same. It isn't sore, or sensitive to acidic foods. It's just a bothersome growth. I would like to know what this might be and how I might treat it.

Thank you....

Daniel

growth in my mouth
Hi,

I have had blister in my mouth as well which burst on ocassion by accident and came up soon after. It has now changed from a blister to a growth. It cant be burst and just sits there and gets in the way sometimes. My teeth graze it on ocassion and it turns red but other than that I dont have a problem eating spicey food, nor do I have any pain or discomfot.

Does anyone know what it is or what it might be. I am going to an ENT specialist to have it checked out. Will share more then.

what's the findings?
hi Anonymous and danieldouglas - what's your conclusions on what you have/had in your mouth?
I seem to be having something very similar, a growth that's much bigger than a canker sore, but not painful even when I poke it to burst it. Just a little thin/watery blood coming out of it. But can't get rid of it, it just comes back or grows back.

I had something similar and it turned out to be an abscessed tooth. I didn't think it was an abscess because it didn't hurt at all, even when I popped it. It was just bothersome when I would accidentally catch it on food or something. I went to the dentist, they gave me some antibiotics and took care of the tooth, and now it's gone. I don't know if yours is the same thing, but probably the best place to start is at your dentist office. Even if it's not an abscess, they would have a better idea of what it is. Good luck!

Based of the replies, i think that it is a growth due to blockage of salivary gland. One of the factors that causes it to occur is due to trauma towards da infected part. To remove those growth, you might have to go and visit mouth specialist(preferably) or dentist to remove it via minor surgery.
