What it could be is not the major issue. ANY growth on your gums is not normal. GO SEE YOUR DENTIST OR A DENTIST IMMEDIATELY. If you're afraid to go, remember that avoiding the dentist or doctor will not solve the problem or make it go away and NO ONE will diagnose this over the phone. Please, seek medical attention on this!
