Don't bother...: Might be a tooth abscess, which needs to be treated by a dentist. "Popping" it will not solve the problem.

Possibly: This may be a sign of an underlying abscess. Get your dentist to have a look. He/she should be able to advise you about the cause.

Mucocele? : It's probably a mucocele. This is a benign mucous containing cyst that can occur on gums. Please see your docotor to be sure that's what it is.
