First thought I bit my cheek, then thought I had a canker sore but I am not sure.. I have a lot of pain at the back of my mouth near my jaw and a small hole has appeared. It’s hard to chew and has been painful for a week now. Is this a canker sore or something to do with my wisdom teeth/molars? Help!

Hi Julia,

Don't believe that it has anything to do with your teeth. Appears to be a canker sore but you can never be too sure though so best thing to do is check with your dentist.

I went to see a dentist and he told me it's just a big ulcer and that it will go away in 2 to 3 weeks. Mine would hurt a lot when I was eating so he gave me a syrup that basically numbs ur whole mouth so that u wouldn't feel discomfort or pain while eating. you should go get it if u have the same problem. He also said the cause of ulcers is lack of sleep, stress, lack of vitamin so go get some multivitamins gummies in ur grocery store

Hey! I have the exact same hole as yours on my right inner cheek! I was searching on Google what it is called but nothing comes up, do you have any idea what it might be exactly? My jaw also hurts whenever I eat and I can't open my mouth properly

OP was in 2018. If other people have similar issues, please provide photos, and what steps you have taken to have it investigated.

I also have something similar or the same, I first noticed it a couple of days ago, moving my jaw and eating is slightly painful and uncomfortable, mine is behind the last tooth, it's much smaller and doesn't have any colour. ( possibly it gets bigger over time )

( sorry for the photo quality )

EDIT :
Also, this might not be related at all. but the day before I started to notice it I burned my tongue with hot tea and also poked the inside of my cheek with a sharp crisp. but I do not believe it would manage to poke all the way in the corner so I don think the crisp caused the hole.
