Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can see an answer but can't rate you. Or reply ?
Is it normal for people to get a small blood blister on cheek ?!
The site is not viewing correctly on that page.

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 1 year 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 ?

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.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok thanks it's small and black on inside of cheek no pain. Not serious ? Have a good day

not serious.

you don't have to worry.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Will it go ?

it may stay there and not change, this blood blister.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Why do they come ? My dentist exam was all normal last Thursday. ?? It came from no where ?

we don't know why blood blisters or cherry angiomas pop up.
