Is this cancer or something else?

Hello everyone,
I'm on holidays with my GF on an island where oral doctor isn't available.she is stressed so much because she saw something in her mouth.
I am posting this from mobile and I can't see how to add photo on the post. So I uploaded it on image hosting and I'm giving you the link https://ibb.co/RShf8x5
If this is against the rules, could someone please explain how to post the picture here?

She is scared that this is cancer. She noticed that 3 days ago, no pain etc.

Thank you

Hello and welcome to MedHelp.  Thanks for the question.  You can post a picture on your home/profile page under photos and link it for us.  I am not sure what she is seeing in her mouth from the linked picture you shared.  What is concerning her?  Here is a link on oral cancer to look at https://www.webmd.com/oral-health/guide/oral-cancer#1  I don't really see anything in the provided picture that looks like what is described as likely oral cancer nor does she have the typical symptoms.  Does she plan to see a doctor upon returning?

Torus palatinus is a harmless, painless bony growth typically located in the midline on the roof of the mouth (hard palate). Most are less than 2 cm, but they can vary in size and shape. It occurs most frequently in females and Asians.
