After lunch today I felt something odd in my mouth looked in and saw this white spot at the top of my paraglossal fold. It randomly vanished and then reappeared. It’s quite sore and irritated.

It looks like an aphthous ulcer and it has a tendency of recurrence. It is self-limiting and settles within a week. chlorhexidine and saltwater rinses would help.

You don’t think it’s a mucus retention cyst?

Thanks for the reply.

It is less likely, as usually they are not sore.

Do you have further questions.
