This is something that needs to be seen to be answered. See an oral surgeon or dentist to find out. Could be normal, could be pathology.

Hard lump on my gum under my tooth. What could this be?

See a dentist ASAP

Teeth_brushing
Without seeing the lump to learn its exact location, color, as well as (important!) x-ray films, only general observation can be listed. This means yours may be completely different. With that being said, many lumps--hard or soft--are often signs of infection. The tooth may be infected with cavity bacteria, or rotting of dead nerve if the tooth has been dead. It may suggest the root has fractured.

What is this lump on my gums? I discovered a sort of bump on my gums in the far back by a bad tooth. At first it was hard and it freaked me out, but now it almost feels like it's collecting puss. It doesn't really hurt at all. It's softer now. I'm going t

Without a visual and/or radiographic examination, it is impossible to say. With that being said, it would be a good idea to get to a Dentist ASAP. Soft swellings are usually a sign of infection.

I used a hard tooth brush & wounded gums. What do I do now?

Use a soft brush

Head-teeth
First brush easy not hard, don't saw with the brush and most importantly use a soft toothbrush. Go easy for a few days maybe just a q tip and some toothpaste to clean but get rid of any hard brushes

Please help! I'm having painful lump/cut under tooth in gum?

Painful Lump

Pain
See your dentist ASAP as this sounds like a tooth that is abscessing; you do not want to leave an infection untreated. It can be easily treated with a root canal. If your dentist determines that it is not tooth related then referral to a specialist is in order.

Dr. Edward Fritz answered:

Is it possible to have tooth abscess but have no lump on the gums?

Abcess

Head-teeth
Yes. Sometimes the infection will drain towards the gums and create the "bump" you referred to. Other times the infection stays in the jawbone and does not drain to the outside.

Help me please! There are small white lump on my gum above front tooth?

Needs evaluation..

This could be a draining fistula from an abscess, either coming from a periodontal problem or endodontic problem. The root may be fractured, too. So hard to know for sure without an examination. Please call a local dentist for an exam and treatment.

I have painless lump on gums and a slightly loose tooth, no pain though, any ideas?

Developing infection

Tooth_decay
That loose tooth is probably loose due to infection,and an abscess is forming that's the lump on your gums. See a dentist ASAP to have it checked and treated.

I discovered a small painless lump on my gums. directly between my tooth and gums. please help?

Small lump

Dental
Where in your mouth is it located? How long has it been there? Is it soft or hard? Has it changed in size or color? There are numerous possibilities. It is impossible to diagnose without an examination. Please see your dentist for an examination, diagnosis and treatment.
