thanks for your query,
the lump could be because of an obstructed salivary gland duct or there might be a cystic lesion of the salivary gland in the floor of the mouth, you need to undergo some radiographs like mandibular occlusal radiograph to rule out any stones in the duct or any calcification within the duct... consult a oral physician to rule out these above said conditions..
