Ridge/bump on gums

Edited , 3 users are following.

for a few months now I've felt this small, hard almost bony bump just above my front tooth. it hasn't changed a lot over the months and its about the same color as the rest of my gums. but sometimes it feels more prominent than other times. it doesn't hurt or ache. its just there. I'm scared this might be serious as i am a hypochondriac. please help narrow down what this might be.

    Hello Warren

    A few years ago I had a hard lump in my mouth.

    A quick appointment at my Dentist surgery was all lt took to find out what it was.

    Are you registered with a dentist?

    Good luck.

    Actually Warren, I think I was offering a very appropriate suggestion about visiting a dentist. They are after all experts in things mouth related.

    Hope you are feeling better.
