I just noticed very hard, very small, completely painless lump way above my last upper right molar. It is really high up, above the arch. When I press it with a finger, it feels like a bone.
I visited the dentist 20 days ago to get root canal done on one of my teeth (same side actually, but not the same tooth), I also had an x-ray, and she didn't notice anything suspicious. I don't know whether the lump was there when she did the root canal-it is so small and totally painless, and if I hadn't stuck my finger to suck the cut tonight (I am feeling a bit ashamed to admit that) and accidentally went a bit far with it, I wouldn't have noticed it.
I can't see it or take a picture of it as it is very small and way above, but I can feel the size under the finger-it is maybe half a pea, that size. Considering my visit to the dentist-is this a "normal" bone "extension", or an abscess (although if it is an abscess, I feel no pain, even when I press, and it must have formed in the last 20 days), or something else?
Thank you in advance!
