sublingual cyst


Hello,

I noticed a sublingual cyst-like growth today and it popped.  I'm pretty sure this has happened in the past but I did not look at it.  Today I saw it and it was about 3 mm, round, and clear before it popped.  

Should I have it evaluated for cancer?  I have had an elevated sedimentation rate for reasons my doctor can not determine, and I did even have a PET/CT done that showed active FDG uptake in the neck and oropharyngeal region.  Is it too late to evaluate because it popped?  What kind of specialist should I see?  My family doctor is not good at all at referrals so I will have to track someone down myself.  Or are these things totally common and benign unless they have certain obvious signs of malignancy?

Thanks so much for your time.
