Do you mean the lump is located in the mouth? If so, the lump in the mouth can be caused by several things, namely:
Mucocele / mucus cyst, which is a bag filled with mucus that is formed due to blockage of the salivary glands. This can occur due to bites, knocks, chronic irritation of the teeth and so on. Apthous ulcers (canker sores), usually preceded by reddish bumps which then become white sores. This condition can be triggered by stress, poor oral hygiene, nutritional deficiencies (such as vitamin C, vitamin B complex, iron, etc.), side effects of drugs (for example chemotherapy drugs), use of toothpaste containing sodium lauryl sulphate. due to bitten wounds, or stirrup wire punctures (if using) Oral herpes, a fluid-filled lump is formed due to Fordyce spot herpes virus infection, which is an enlarged oil gland on the lips / mouth which is generally small in size.Coxsackie virus infection (hand foot and mouth disease) reddish bumps on the mouth, hands, feet due to viral infection. Benign tumors that are formed from connective tissue (fibroma) Fungal infection (oral candidiasis) Oral cancer To be sure, you should see a general practitioner to be examined directly on the condition of your mouth. If necessary, the doctor will perform supporting examinations such as blood tests or refer you to an internal medicine specialist to determine the exact cause. And after that you will be given treatment according to the underlying cause.
Some things you can do to maintain oral health and prevent worsening of the disease are:
Brush your teeth after eating and before going to bed Use dental floss to clean the remains of plaque between your teeth. Gargle with antiseptic mouthwash Consume enough water, which is about 2 liters a day. Consume nutritious foods, increase fruit and vegetables as a source of vitamins and minerals. good Avoid smoking, alcohol, and foods with high sugar content That is the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and is useful :)
