Hello Dear Dentists,

What could be this very soft bump on the edge of my gum and tooth?

Sensitivity when touched, it's soft, gets very red and bleeds.

2 weeks ago, when it was smaller, my dentist thought it's granulation and that I might've just hurt the gum when brushing/flossing (I never felt any) and the moment he touched it slightly it bled a lot. Unfortunately, now it's bigger and redder. A bit less sensitive but still can't touch it and avoid touching it with the brush to not irritate it.

I first noticed it 3+ weeks ago, when it was very sensitive (even when wiping my mouth with a napkin), now it's not as sensitive but seems bigger.

Thank you so much for any ideas!

Go to periodontist surgeon instead other dentist . It could be periodontitis inflammation to hidden deep infection , abscess formation etc
