Dark lump next to tonsil. Occassional bleeding. Small twinge when swallowing. Solution?

Hi, Today i have noticed a small dark lump next to my tonsil that occasionally bleeds , ending up with a small amount of blood in my mouth when i wake up. I have recently suffered with a mild gum infection which is mostly cleared up now by using corsodly mouth wash. At first i thought it was a small piece of food as it has no feeling and moves around but when i tried to dislodge it it began to bleed slightly. There is no pain apart from a small twinge when i swallow , particularly after eating food. Any thought on what i should do, ill be going to my gp after the weekend.

Thanks for posting your query.
Bleeding may be due to -
Poor oral hygiene.
I would advice you to get your teeth cleaned.
Rinse your mouth after every meals.
Use soft interdental toothbrush and dental floss to clean your teeth.
The lump developed next to tonsil has to be treated.
Please do visit a dentist as well as ENT specialist for further concern.
Take care.
