small red bump w/black/dark-red spots in mouth?

I just found a small red bump in my mouth right underneath my rear molar tooth. its circular and round, and no more than 1-2mm. But it has dark-red/black on it.

I do chew tobacco however. Does anyone know if this is a common cancer sign, or some other gum disease? (if it doesn't go away in a week or 2 I'm going to the doctor)

    Definitely keep an eye on this lesion, as your tobacco use puts you at a higher risk of developing mouth cancer. If the bump hasn't gone away in 10 days, see a dentist. In truth it's hard to give any more help without actually seeing the lesion. I hope this helps!

    Thats definatly not normal. go to the doctor/dentist and have it checked out.

    Try googling sign of cancer in the mouth ot from chewing tobacco

    Hopefully it isnt cancer ,good luck..
