Hi, This bump could be a mucocele (more common on lower lip but can occur any where in mouth) which is transparent swelling due to obstruction/rupture of minor salivary glands. It may heal upon itself or rupture spontaneously to heal. Other possibilities could be fibroma (usually pink and hard to touch),granuloma (nearer to gums) and rarely any malignancy but to reach to diagnosis you need to get yourself examined by a dentist or physician. Hope this helps.
