Hi all. This past weekend I noticed a lump in on the roof of my mouth that I'm sure is fairly new. It is smooth, like there is a match head or almost a bb embedded under the skin. It is not notably discolored. Feels like there is a little bump next to it.
I'm 25, never smoked, infrequent casual drinker. I grind my teeth when I sleep and was just fitted with a new mouthguard for that.
I do intend to get it checked out ASAP, but I am in Europe on business until the end of the week (I don't speak the language, and I have no idea how my insurance would even work over here).
So basically I have 5 more days to worry about it until I can get it checked out. To sedate my worrying, I would like to know what this could be besides some kind of tumor. How serious does this sound? What else could it be?
I had a dentist appt a month ago, and he didn't notice anything. As I said, I just noticed it this past weekend. Seems like it came on rather fast. Is 5 days too long to wait?
Thanks for any help. (And thanks to Google for pointing this out to me.)
