    It may be an accumulation of mucous in the saliva duct. Usually the floor of the mouth heals quickly after mild trauma and irritation.

    So is that an ulcer? Should it have healed by now? What should i do in meantime?

    Thanks

    No, it is not an ulcer. From this vantage point, I don't see anything unusual. Look and feel for any swelling. If no swelling, you are in the clear.

    Ok, it just feels slightly irritated but not really swollen as such. When i rub tongue in that area feels slightly more raised then other side is that a concern? Is it cancerous?

    I don't know the answer to the difflam spray and the reason you feel raised in the area. You shouldn't be feeling much now. The floor of the mouth heals quickly. Don't irritate it.
