Stress or fatigue: Stress or fatigue can increase the incidence of oral lesions or sores. You can get canker sores or cold sores in the mouth. It could also be a sign of clenching or grinding at night causing you to bite your tongue. I would suggest bringing it up at your next dental check up.

See doc or dentist: This could be a simple cyst but you need to let your doctor or dentist examine it as soon as possible to make sure it is nothing more serious.
