Hi Nabee

Since you've had a tooth ache for the past few days, the best first step would be a visit to the dentist. Could you have bitten the inside of your cheek?

Please let us know what happens.

Thanks so much soooo so much Julia for replying. I had a little tooth ache for 2 consecutive days but now its much better. I cant understand what the black spot is all about.. i feel no pain there... i doubt i've bitten there but i cant be sure of it. its a prominent round shaped black spot. if anyone can tell me... if its some sort of blood blister or something else? Or can it be due to having very hot or cold food or coffee? at times i feel my teeth is sensitive to very cold or hot food so i normally avoid having such food but today early morning i had a very hot cup of coffee. do you think it got to do with some dental problem? i am worried of melanoma. is it a sign of cancer? i am only 23.

an additional info, i've never smoked i am a non-smoker, i dont drink alcohol, i dont wear braces.. i am really tensed what can cause this. i'll go to my family doctor tomorrow.. i really hope its nothing serious. i will also try to take an appointment of a dentist. i have my university mid-term exams day after tomorrow and i just cant concentrate on anything now i am really worried. thanks again dear for replying.

i'll really be grateful if more members of this forum can provide some suggestions and helps and their insights on this matter.

Hi Nabee,

It may be just an amalgam tattoo. I have several which have nothing to do with the tonsil cancer I've had treated and survived.

You can go to google images to view all sorts of amalgam tattoos.

Hello panicking

It could be a blood blister caused by cheek biting, why don't you post a photo of it?

Let us know what you dentist says.

Best wishes
