Growth in Mouth

regnc2 posted:
Hi there, this is a bit hard for me to describe accurately, but I have a strange membrane-like growth in the back of my mouth that developed out of nowhere in the past half hour. It moves around but it feels kind of like a long, thin cyst...and when I moved it with my tongue it seemed sensitive like there were nerves in it. At first I thought it was food but when I tried to remove it, it started to bleed. I can't see it, but it's near where one of my wisdom teeth is coming in. It's getting really painful and I'm just worried it could be something dangerous, especially because it developed so fast.

Any opinions or help are greatly appreciated. Thanks
