In brief: Several reasons

You need to be examined to determine if your lump is tooth or gum related.
In some instances a biopsy is needed to determine the condition. Seek examination asap.

Definitely agree here. Based on your description, there's a huger variety of things this could be, anywhere from very benign self-resolving nothing to worry about to malignant and aggressive requiring immediate treatment. Get it checked out ASAP.

In brief: Abscess tooth

Could be an abscesses tooth either from the tooth itself or the surrounding gum tissue.
