The lump could be an abrasion or contusion from hard food or accidentally bite, infection, or growth.
These are just a few of the more common causes although there are many other possibilities. The lump and the soreness may or may not be related. You need to see your dentist for a personal clinical examination in order to accurately diagnose the situation.
