In brief: Possible

You can get small lesions in the gums around your teeth that can be related to abscess.
They are sometimes painful and sometimes not. You should have a dentist take a look for you...Especially if you already know you have cavities and problems.

In brief: It's not good!

Most likely scenarios are infection from decayed tooth that abscessed and the infection is trying to escape to the outside of your gums, or..
..A gum infection from long standing calculus and periodontal (gum) disease. There are other possibilities. Whatever it is, it could be dangerous, will not get better on its own and needs immediate attention. See your dentist asap for diagnosis and treatment.

In brief: Many possibilities

You need a good dental exam. If you had a clean well maintained dentition the diagnosis might be simpler. But with the state of your mouth, the possibilities are endless.
