Exclamation Growth on the inside of the mouth

Hi guys...
I have a little bit of a problem. Probably about three days ago I was brushing Messina's teeth and I noticed this round white bump on the inside of her lip...I couldn't figure out what it was...it looks like a ball of cotton...very soft looking and round...and a creamy white..like I said..similar to a small ball of cotton (I guess you can compare the size to a large ladybug?).

Anyways...Messina has had some growths before..one on her elbow that went away by itself after a few months..and one on her toe..which I waited for it to go away but after about 4 months decided to simply remove..I was very happy when the doctor did a local freeze on her toe instead of operating on her while she was asleep (I HATE anesthetic (sp?))

So..I went to the vet with her yesterday and he told me that I should wait for a few months and it should go away...he said it looks like a wart type growth..but as far as I know, warts don't just go away..you have to burn them or remove them...so I was a little confused by that..but he told me to wait..

Have you guys ever had anything like that grow inside your dogs mouth? He said its not cancerous or anything...and that I shouldn't really worry...and to be honest..the only thing that I'm worried about is having to get it removed..I would hate the thought of having her put asleep to get it operated on...because I know they couldn't do a local on the inside of her mouth..that would be difficult without her moving around too much I'm sure.

What do you guys think...do those kinds of wart thingies go away?
(sorry about the dreadfully long post)
