Extra bone in middle palate

Dear Doctor,

it is about 2 months that i found out i have something similar to an extra bone on my hard palate. i am scared it can be something dangerous like a cancer. Can you please let me know what it is? i herewith attach a picture.

The presenting picture suggests torus palatinus or exostosis, which is considered anatomic variation. Malignant transformation is never reported.
