See you doctor : Where exactly are the lumps in your mouth? If they are located towards the back of the throat and associated with sore throat you may have an infection or irritation called inflammation. Unlikely for it to be cancer. See your doctor for an examination.

You are ok: Infections and mouth ulcers are common in teenagers. Cancer is something found in older individuals. See you physician to get a wash that can help make it go away. Make sure you stay away from tobacco and drugs and you'll be fine.
