Let us know what the vet says. Looks like an irritation or possibly a sebaceous cyst.

my dog had something EXACTLY like that but on the underside of his elbow.
i took him to the vet, and they stuck a needle to extract the cells, and got a call a day or two later saying it was BENIGN cancer.
told me that stuff like this USUALLY subsides on its own, but told me since it's on the elbow, and since dogs lay down on their elbow, it might irritate him in the long run.
luckily, it went away in about a week and a half later.

your dog's growth under the mouth would most likely irritate him just the same, since when dogs lay down, their put their heads on the floor, and that growth will be in direct contact with teh floor surface.

anywyas, good call on your part to take him to the vet.
good luck to you and your dog

oh and by the way, i cut up a pair of thick athletic sock, and wrapped it around his elbow where the growth was, so as not to bother him.
here's a pic after a few days from the vet visit.

OK I looked at the photo and my first take was "What???" thinking you had wrapped the dog's jaw in a very big way...... So ....



To the OP - hope this goes away quickly.


To Pan - thanks for the unintended humor.
hahha
yea dind't think about that but i guess the way picture came out sideways could have made it a confusing.
