Black spot in cheek

Hi.  I'm not sure if this is the correct forum but I'll ask anyway.  About a month ago I tested positive for mono and for Oral Herpes, HSV 1.  My glands are still a little swollen and I have a minor sore throat but other than that I'm okay.  I just noticed yesterday that I have a black spot on the inside of my right cheek.  It's very dark which is how I noticed it.  It's only about the size of a pinhead but it's raised a little because I can feel it with my tongue.  Any ideas of what this could be?  I thought maybe it had to do with the mono or herpes but doesn't really seem to relate.  Thanks

Without seeing the lesion, a definitive diagnosis can be made.I do not think it is related to the mono or the Herpes. I do believe it should be checked by your dentist or an oral surgeon.
