On the gum in between two of my teeth on my upper left middle set is a small (1 or 2 mm) painless white lump. To add to that the whole "piece" of gum that is between my two teeth looks and feels swollen. It almost looks as if i had had cut right where my gums go down between these two teeth teeth leaving this little patch of swollen gum.
It doesn't bleed at all, even when vigourously brushing or flossing, nor does it hurt.
It has been around for a couple weeks, getting neither bigger or smaller. Neither of the teeth on either side hurt at all.
Any idea what it could be? Some food that got stuck in there? I have been eating a lot of popcorn lately.
