Q.

Bump on Gum

Dear Doc

My 10 year old has a bump on his gum. It almost looks like a wart in size. He said he has had it for a while but I have no idea how long a ''while'' is. It does not seem painful like an ulcer. He was at the dentist in February last. What on earth could it be?

it could be many things one of which is an abscess- February is 3 months ago and this could have developed after the dental visit.
