Glands In Soft Palate?

Hello. For about 4-5 months now I have had what I think are 2 swollen glands on the roof of my mouth, 1 on each side. They are not on the soft palate, but rather BEHIND the palate, right where the soft and ahrd palate meet. They feel like little peas, and are hard. They do not hurt at all. I was curious if these are glands or bone. Should I be concerned? Thanks a lot.

I would recommend seeing your dentist for an evaluation of the area.  I don't know if its bone or glands.  You may need a biopsy to see what it is if it is suspicious looking.
