Hi, I hope you are all well. About a month ago I developed this small hard bump on the inside of my cheek, behind my back tooth. It hasn't gone away on it's own. It doesn't necessarily hurt, but it is hard and irritating and I notice it all the time, especially when I eat. I do think it has gotten bigger.

I hope this is the right place to post this. I don't smoke or drink, and I try to take good care of my teeth. Should I see someone about this? What could it be? Thanks for your time.

It appears to be superficial mucocele due to trauma. It does not appear to be sinister. I would get it checked if it is not going away in the next 2 weeks.
