A:   Thank you for your question. This red spot may simply be a small broken capillary in the within the buccal mucosa (inside cheek). This could have been caused by eating and may not be associated with any serious pathology. If you notice it increasing in size or is becoming painful you may require further evaluation by your doctor. Otherwise, this is something you should monitor on your for any changes.
