    Soft flesh colored bump on gum line

    I am a 21 year old male and for a couple years now I have had this soft real tiny bump on my gum above my front tooth. I wouldn't really call it a bump, it's more like a growth out of my gum. It's the same color as my gums, It never hurts or bleeds and it is as soft as any other part of my gums. I have been to the dentist a lot these past years and I always forget to ask about it. But, I figured he would have said something if he noticed it was dangerous as well as if it was really serious it would have been exposed on one of the million X-rays I have had done. Anyways the past couple of days I have been looking at stuff online and everything I read basically says its cancer, so I am starting to freak out a bit. What do you think?

    I think you should stop looking at stuff online. If you want peace of mind then you'll need to have your dentist take a look.
