In brief: See your doctor

You should see your doctor and get it checked.
You probably need to see an oral surgeon if the bump looks suspicious for a biopsy. Cancerous lesion usually painless.

In brief: Needs examination

Without physical examination of the "bump" it is not possible to say.
The lesion needs to be examined and if suspicious shold be biopsied so the that the tissue may be examined by a pathologist to be certain of the diagnosis.
