Where : Where are these bumps? On the inside of your cheek? Might be the end of the salivary ducts.
Or are the bumps hard and on your bone? This might be an exostosis.
Why don't you make an appointment with your dentist who can physically examine you? You'll have peace of mind having a professional look at it.

It : It seems too obvious to answer, but a concern like you have can only be addressed properly by your dentist.
There are many reasons short of cancer as to why you have these bumps. Get them looked at.
