Provisional diagnosis could be Oral Mucocele . In view of incomplete case history.. A non-cancerous cyst-like space in the mouth that contains mucus. is a harmless cyst or bump in your mouth. You can get it if a tiny tube (duct) that moves saliva gets damaged or blocked. This most often happens if you repeatedly bite or suck on your lower lip or cheek. Lip biting and trauma to the face or mouth are common causes. Oral mucocele are most frequently seen in people younger than age 20.. Mucoceles often go away without treatment. But sometimes they enlarge. Don't try to open them or treat them yourself..

It's a case of oral mucocele which may have occured due to trauma caused bythe presence of upper wisdom tooth impinching on the extraction site...generally goes away with time if the cause is stopped

It's nearby 3M extraction site only. It could also be due to suture infalmation or LA administration inflammatory reaction. It's normal, it will subside. Pt can apply mucopain gel and massage the area 4-5x/ day. It will reduce or dissapear within 7 days. Need not worry.

Thank you doctor
