    Just once probably won't be much of anything.  You could always go to your adsense account and contact them to let them know that you know that you made a mistake.  They well know that that happens from time to time - it's no big deal.

    They DO know when click fraud is going on though, and you will never, ever, EVER regain an adsense account after click fraud.

    As Wesman says it makes no difference if it happens the odd time.  They won't pay you any money for it though.  If they think it's deliberate, you are in trouble, however, as they will ban you!

    I've accidentally clicked an adsense ad of my own about three times over the past 4 months, normally when the screen is slow to load and I'm trying to click on something else.

    You are allowed to click other people's ads though.  Provided you have a genuine interest in the advert (ie you're not in a mutual clicking agreement).

    Human's make mistakes every now and then, just don't make a habit out of it and you will be fine. As Wesman said, you may benefit from telling them you made a mistake.

    If you just click once then it will be fine but if you do more then that then they can block you!

    If you accidently done it once then it shouldn't be an issue, it's when you're constantly clicking it, is when it becomes an issue. So there's no need to worry.
