didn’t have these lumps earlier. Also I have got lumps near lower molars as well on both sides of the cheek. So do you see anything abnormal with the Stensen duct? I m sure they were not this large earlier.the lumps are painless and have been there for 3 weeks not healing. Is there anything I need to be concerned about or could these be because of dehydration or vitamin deficiency? Are these contagious?Bilateral lumps are usually anatomic. The bump next to your upper molar are called Stensen's duct. The red spot may be from trauma.
Also there are lumps near my lower molars as well. What could these be? Also attaching the pic of other cheekHonestdoc is correct, they are the openings to Stensen's ducts. Sometimes they can get a bit damaged when eating and swollen and hence more noticeable, but there is nothing wrong.
