Maybe normal: These bumps you are describing maybe normal bu to be sure you need to see a dentist.

Your dentist is a great starting point in seeking evaluation for this issue.

Not abscess: But any lump and any area that bleeds should be examined. Probably nothing to worry about, but call your dentist to have areas examined if, for nothing else, peace of mind.

Potentially: Would have pcp or dentist evaluate, see if infectious or other etiology.
