I am a 19 year old male college student with a family history of cancer (all three of my grandparents who have passed away did so because of cancer).
I also smoke a little bit. I bought my first pack of cigarettes about a month ago, and have probably smoked 8-10 cigarettes this month.
So yesterday, I felt a lump in gums directly in front of my lower right lateral incisor. It looks almost like a whitehead, but on my gums. It doesn't really look anything like the pictures of oral ulcers that I've seen, so I'm not sure exactly what it is.
If you could please shed some light on what it could be, and how I should treat it, I'd greatly appreciate it.
