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.

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

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

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.

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.

Dr. Don Millner answered:

I have a lump on my gums, it's located where the wisdom tooth is, I popped it with a needle and white watery pus came out. What does this mean?

Erupt wisdom tooth

Cdv_photo_005
Given your age, it is highly probable that your wisdom tooth is erupting. If your dentist agrees, consider getting it extracted since most people cannot clean them and can eventually lead to their loss and possibly damage or the loss if the tooth next to it.

Dr. Fay Gyapong answered:

Tooth #3 pulled 12/4 now #2 feels weird pressure no pain also have lump (feels bony hurts if pushed on) on gums of #3. Infection or just healing?

Post op

Head-teeth
It appears that if the painful area that persists in the area where you had tooth #2 extracted over two weeks ago, it may be a bone fragment that has lost it's blood supply and could become more problematic. It could also be a pathology with an entirely different origin. Either way, I suggest that you return to the treating doctor for an examination.
