I have had this lump on my hard palate for about three months now. It is located near the middle line and a few millimeters to the left. It is about 2 x 2 mm in size, pretty round and it does not hurt. I thought this might be torus palatinus. But, I heard that this torus is mostly symmetrical and my lump is only on one side of the palate. In the picture, it looks a little red because I scratched it with my finger nail. It was just a little bit more red than the other side of my palate as I scratched it. So, what could this be? I am scared that it might be some kind of cancer.

Thank you doctor,
When I try to press it, it is hard and almost as hard as a bone. I am 19 and I noticed it only about three months ago. I did not really pay attention to it and I thought that it might get smaller or disappear. But, I recently noticed it again. I smoked for about half a year, but not very much. I used to smoke maximum one cigarette a day and I quitted smoking now.
