Lump at the back of mouth since years, irritaion while swallowing, feels when inserted a finger. Is it serious?

I have what feels like a lump towards the back of my mouth. It s almost right where the tongue meets the gum line. I ve had this feeling before, years ago. It feels irritated whenever I swallow or eat something, but it isn t very painful, just annoying. I can t see it in the mirror. I can only feel it when I stick my finger back there. It feels like a small lump. What could it be and is it serious?

hello and welcome to HCM forum,
i would like to inform you that a lump which has suddenly appeared needs to be checked thoroughly by the dentist, it may increase in increase over time, i therefore advise you to see a dentist.
Do not worry, the lump may be normally present, just to make sure nothing is wrong kindly visit your dentist.
The lump may be due to an infection and subside as the infection resolves,
Dentist may prescribe medication if required,
i hope i answered your query,
