Yes: The only thing i know for sure as a dr is that you will die.But not soon from movable lumps on your jaw.
This does however require a visit to a dr.

Fear not!: Likely these are normal excess gum tissues or undulations. Cancer is uncommon among young people. Get checked by a dentist or a dr for reassurance. Google online for images of gums or buccal mucosa/inside lining of mouth. (perhaps u may die 60 years from now. God only knows!) in the meantime cherish and enjoy life with your family & friends ! god bless u!
