In brief: Yes

It is a common variation of have a platal torus.
Most are a normal variation and do not require any intervention. If a patient needs a full upper denture then the torus may need to me removed. If it intefers with speech or swallowing then it may need to be removed.

In brief: Are you a smoker?

When i hear about itchy bumps on the roof of the mouth, occurring over a long period of time, i think of a condition seen in smokers.
This causes a cobblestoned surface to the roof of the mouth and results from irritation from the tobacco smoke. It should be evaluated by a dermatologist who is familiar with oral diseases to make sure it isn't something more serious.
