The description you provided appears to be a Mucous retention Cyst.

This is usually benign and contains clear mucous fluid. It develops due to sucking and no intervention is usually required since it ruptures spontaneously.

However, you should show this to your doctor and get it removed if it has been present for a long time or irritates you.

It is less likely that your dry mouth has anything to do with this. However, cigarette smoking may be partly responsible for the dry mouth.

Hope this helped. Let us know if you may have any other questions.
