In brief: Possible abscess

Most painful bumps in the mouth are an indication of an abscess or infection.
The only way to be sure is to have a dental exam. Please see a dentist ASAP.

As most oral lesions have a Dental or supporting tissue origin, suggest starting w your Dentist. Of not a Dental problem, Dentist will refer you to appropriate practitioner for additional investigation.
