Thrush is a fungal disease that leaves white patches not bumps on gums or cheeks. Since you have no teeth or dentures, it could be an irritation on gums from eating something hard or pointed. It could be a small root tip or piece of tooth that was left in area. See a dentist for x-ray and exam.

Get your gums checked by your dentist. There can be an overgrowth of gum tissue due to past infections or irritations. X-ray of the area can reveal if the teeth have any issues or you have a periodontal problem

As I'm sure you understand, "bump" can refer to so many lesions, scar tissue, boney growths, neoplasms, etc. Please see your Dentist for a qualified answer. Without examination and possible x-rays an answer from this platform would only be a guess.
