Suggest remedy for lumps in the gums

During my pregnancy ive had a few lumps like a lump of gum on my gum, but one went away after birth, but I still have a lump its red, but with red spots n white. It bleeds when touched, the top of lump moves a little and it as got a little smaller, ive had it now for a long time and the tooth its by is broken. The lump doesnt hurt much but feels bit squishy but sometimes feels hard. I get a few pains in my ear and sometimes get sore throat like its dry and burnt out. Im worried the bump/lump is cancer :-(

From history it seems that due to broken tooth there might be having some root infection in broken tooth giving this problem.
Go for one antibiotic medicine course for 5 days.
After infection subsided go for dental treatment of broken tooth like extraction, Root canal tratment etc.
Ok and take care.
