Lump in the mouth: I hate to say this, but this is something you really should see your dentist for ... Such a bump could be normal boney structure that you were previously in aware. Or is could be an abscess - though these are usually associated with pain. It could even be cancerous. Unfortunately, your description and lack of a clinical picture ties my hands. See your dentist.

Torus Palatinus?: There are many possibilities and without actually being able to examine you, no way to know for sure. It may be a torus (excess bone) and nothing to be concerned about, or.........Something that is not normal and requires treatment. You will need to see a local dentist to find out what it actually is.

See your dentist: We can't diagnose your problem without actually seeing you. You will have to visit your dentist to find out what it is. Even if we knew what it was, you will probably require treatment by a dentist. It could be many things, and especially if it's an infection, don't delay making that call to your dentist.

An infection ?: Can't tell if that is what you have. If so, it needs to be evaluated by a dentist. That tooth may have to come out, or it may need root canal therapy. Draining it will not solve the problem.
