LAP: Could be due to enlarged lymph nodes, if you have some sort of upper respiratory infection. If it does not resolve in timely manner, seek medical attention.

If you have dental caries...cavities...it could be abcess formation. Agree, get seen by a dentist

In cheek upper molars could also be a blocked parotid gland with a sialolith. See your dentist to be evaluated. Tongue lesion could be something as simple as a traumatic fibroma but again, see your dentist

Lumps: The locations you describe are not common areas for "lumps." Would suggest that you see your Dentist to establish base-line and then follow changes over time. If lumps do not resolve in a week or two, further investigation may be applicable.
