What does it mean if there is a small hole in the gums inside the mouth after the last tooth but before the wisdom teeth?

I have the same problem. I never got my wisdom teeth taken out. I am 23 years old now, and a few days ago i found a small hole, about the size of a pencil lead right behind my last moler, in between where my wisdom tooth should be, and where the molar is. Food gets stuck in it, its very sensitive to cold/hot. It almost feels as the pain would feel before having a root canal. I would also like to know possible things this could be. I looked up mouth cancer, and its not a sign or symptom of it.

Purple blisters on the tongue or inside of your mouth are called blood blisters. These can be caused by biting the inside of your mouth or tongue.

The inside of the mouth is one of the fastest healing parts of the body. A small cut (how did you manage that?) should heal in 2-3 days.
