Least Possibility: You are 16 only. Anyways, make a trip to your pediatrician/ family doc's office to have an exam and diagnosis.

Lump in tongue: Very rarely a cancer. You may be biting your tongue and check during sleep, especially if you grind you teeth. Try a mouth guard. Use meditation, and yoga to relax.
