Swelling: Any bleeding, pain, or as in your case, swelling, are red flags that your body puts up to tell you that something's wrong. Without an examination it's just a guess. Please see your Dentist for an examination to arrive at a differential diagnosis, and from that the appropriate treatment. Dentist will want to know duration of the "bumps" and whether they have changed in size, shape, color.
