Black mole like dot on the inside of my cheek HELP!?

Postby lynd » Fri Feb 03, 2012 3:57 am

I'm 14 if that helps...I woke up this morning and felt a little bump on the inside of my left cheek. I looked in the mirror and there is a very dark red, almost black, mole like bump. It protrudes very slightly, when you look at it its harder to see that its a bump but it is immediately noticeable when I feel it with my tongue. It's about the size of a nail head. It doesn't hurt at all. I read on the internet that it could either be some kind of mouth tattoo or something but I don't think that's it cause when I look at pictures of those they are completely black and flat. I also read that it could be a blood clot from biting my cheeks to hard. Could it also be melanoma?? I don't know what to do! Please help

It's almost certainly a blood blister from biting your cheek even if you don't recall ever doing it but if its still there and hasn't changed colour in say 4 or 5 days go to your DENTIST they are the experts on oral cancers but I'm quite sure it's not that from your description.
Dont panic. best of luck
