Go to your doctor: A bump on the roof of your mouth is probably nothing but who can tell from this question. If you have an issue with a mass in your mouth, you need to see a doctor or a dentist now.

See a doctor: Please see your doctor. You may need to see an oral surgeon for a biopsy etc if the bump looks suspicious.
