Porous/spongy area on my mouth

This started as a very slightly coarse spot inside my cheek. I could feel it with my tongue, but could only visualize the porous caracteristic of the skin on reflex. This was three months ago.

This is how it looks like now:

Clearly more visible. A little bit red. It has also created some kind of salience which is easiy detected just with my tongue sitting normally on my mouth. The area is a bit sensitive too.

What is this?
