In brief: May not be related

These 2 symptoms may or may not be related.
Sore throat may be flu or any upper respiratory tract infection. Could be from trauma. Virus or bacteria. Who knows? The bump? How long has it been there? Could be a natural bony growth. Could be a cyst. Could be a number of things. Please see an md or a dds in person for further answers.

In brief: Bump and throat

Can be a lot of different things.
..One possibility is a torus (harmless bone that occurs in a lot of people) if it is is right in the middle. If it is near the teeth then you need an xray to see if nerve is okay. The sore throat has nothing to do with either of these possibilities. Call your dentist and or call your md to have both things checked out.
