With mucocele, patients may notice lumps or lesions in the mouth. Mouth lesions can vary widely: some may be soft or rubbery, sore or painless, clear or bluish in colour. Often, swelling in the mouth is caused by trauma or blocked salivary ducts. In some cases, swelling or lesions in the mouth may indicate a more serious condition.

Any swelling or sores in the mouth that last for longer than a week should be examined by Dr McHugh.
