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.

Your mouth might tingle or burn before the actual sore appears. Soon, a small red bump rises. Then after a day or so it bursts, leaving an open, shallow white or yellowish wound with a red border.

Wisdom teeth (permanent 3rd molars) most often make their appearance between the ages of 16 and 20. However, they can grow in much earlier, much later, or not at all.

This why wisdom teeth are often removed.
