In brief: Buccal Exostosis

Sounds like an exostosis is benign growths of bone.
No treatment is required for bony exostosis unless it becomes so large that it interferes with function. If concerned see your dentist for consultation.

In brief: Hard or soft ?

A hard bump can be a bony exostosis, a soft bump could be an abscess, painful or not.
Please see a dentist for an evaluation.
