User avatar Hello,

You should have it checked. There's no way of telling what it is without an examination. It could something simple such as a mucocele which is an accumulation of mucus that happens after a salivary duct ruptures due to trauma.

Oral pathology requires examination to rule out more dangerous causes.

Best regards,
