Mucocele: Most likely a mucocele. Google it. If it comes back, see your dentist.

"odd big bump": I think it is a mucocele. The description and location are very similar for mucocele lesion. Diagnosis is made by examination and history of the previous trauma. The most common treatment is a surgical removal of the lesion. Good luck.
