What does white bump on lower jaw line means?

I have gum disease and about 4 years ago had an outbreak of ANUG. Now, there is a white growth bump on the inside of my lower teeth line. I almost thought it was an extra tooth growing, but it is lower than my toothline. It is only smaller than a pencil eraser head. Any ideas what this could be?
