    Hi there, I have recently noticed a small lump inside my cheek, high up in line with my back tooth. It isn’t painful but I’m a bit concerned about what it may be. It has been there for at least a few weeks but possibly longer without me being aware... any advice would be appreciated

    It's hard to see it clearly but I think it is a minor salivary duct lesion. Usually it will go away but if it sticks around for another week, have it checked.

    Is this a better picture? My dentist is a very good friend and I know it’s silly but I’m worried about going to her with this ... getting a bit worked up about it
