thanks for your query,
the lump in the mouth could be because of many reasons one of those is the tooth infection causing abscess or cyst...if you have any smoking or pan chewing habits then it could be leukoplakia its a precancerous lesion...kindly go for radioographic investigations like OPG to rule out other causes..consult your dental surgeon as early as possible..
