Are Any Lumps In Your Mouth Normal?
Posted on 4/15/2019 by Rodney Rastegar
Our bodies are unique. Everyone is a little different shape and look. Despite that, there are things that are thought of as normal and things that are out of the ordinary. Things can happen or grow in our body that could mean there is something wrong or may mean nothing at all. Lumps in the mouth may fall into that category. People that experience lumps need to understand when they are normal and when they mean something is not quite right. Causes of Lumps in the MouthThere are many reasons that you can end up with lumps in the mouth that you feel. Biting the skin in the mouth can cause a sore and swelling. Blisters can form if you eat food that is hot and that burns the inside of your mouth. Things like this may or may not require any type of treatment. It depends on the severity and how long they last. Some of the other reasons that people get lumps in their mouth may require some form of treatment. Warts, thrush and cold sores can all create something that feels like a lump in the mouth. It is important to have these types of lumps examined to see if they can cause more problems. Bony growths can cause the lumps and may or may not need removal. Don't Ignore the LumpsThere is also the possibility that the lumps in the mouth are pre-cancerous or cancerous. It is normal for people to experience lumps in the mouth. It is also a sign that the body is reacting to something. Because the causes of the lumps may or may not present a danger to the individual, it is always a good idea to have the lumps examined. That is the best way to determine if they are a threat or not. Make sure to tell us about any lumps in the mouth you have experienced and the impact they had on you.
