Salivary duct/stress: lumps most likely are salivary ducts and those can become painfully blocked....if not milked you may need to have removed. Also, prolonged "deep"kissing can cause over stressed areas of the tongue and the bumps may have nothing to do with it.

Suspicious lumps?: Regardless the cause... I would advise you to have the swelling inside your left cheek examined by a dentist or dental specialist (e.g. oral surgeon, OFP). Any suspicious lumps that does not resolve itself in 2-3 weeks should be evaluated.
