Since how long you are suffering from the torus palatinus. Was that by birth?
Also since how long it started paining.
Have you earlier got any consultation with some specialist and had any Radiographs/X-ray done for that.
If not then do get the radiographs done by advice of some General dentist/Maxillofacial surgeon in your locality.
My advice to you is to get it surgically removed as early as possible as this is the only cure for the cause. You might be need a palatal obturator if the size is big.
Hope this helps.

With Regards,

Torus Palatinus is an invagination of bone inside the oral cavity if it is on the palate it is called torus palatine if it is on the manidular bone it is called torus mandibularis.

Normally it does not harm or interfere in normal oral functions, but if it has started giving symptom like pain, tenderness, redness,etc. the best possible treatment is surgical excision.

I suggest you to visit to your dentist, get it investigated, and take the treatment.
