The site is not viewing correctly on that page.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 months ago.

yes, it is normal for people to get a small blood blister on the cheek.

it is most likely a benign cherry angioma.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
That sounds horrific ? What is that ?
It's a black dot on my left inner cheek.
My platelet count was 178 on Monday yearly CBC
But I did bruise badly my toe on running any connection ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 months ago.

a benign cherry angioma can look like a small blood blister.

platelet counts of 178 is normal.

the bruise is just from running.

it is not related to your platelet counts or your blood blister.
