Hard Lump On The Roof Of The Mouth But Not Painful?
Hello, good morning, I’m 21 years old, I’m not married, I want to ask why there is a hard lump on the roof of my mouth, it’s been more than 1 month but if I press it it doesn’t hurt, then my throat is also often itchy and stuffy nose, what is the cause of cancer, please explain ,thanks.
Hi Wahyu, Thank you for the question.
The following are the causes of lumps on the roof of the mouth:
Tonus palatinus, which is a bony prominence on the roof of the mouth
Pleomorphic adenoma, which is a benign tumor of the salivary glands
An itchy throat accompanied by a stuffy nose is caused by an influenza virus infection or the flu. In addition to these complaints, sufferers may also experience cough, fever, headache, muscle aches, and fatigue.
Further examination by a doctor is needed to determine the cause of your complaint. You should first consult with your doctor. The doctor will ask about your complaints and examine you. If necessary, the doctor will suggest a biopsy (removing tissue for examination in a laboratory) on this lump. Further treatment will be determined by the doctor.
Please do the following suggestions:
keep your oral cavity and teeth clean by brushing your teeth twice a day
eat nutritious food
drink more water
try drinking warm water or inhaling warm steam to ease breathing
Hope this information is useful.
