Hard lump in mouth

I have had a hard lump growing on the inside of my bottom jaw (mouth) for a long time, I am not sure, but I don' t think that it is getting any bigger, I have had it a while, but also not sure how long. It feels like hard bone under the skin, perhaps a root that is gowing skew, however, the tooth is fine. There is no pain. I am just paranoid it might be cancer, does it sound possible? or is it just a cyst perhaps.

Thanks for your time. Cath

Hello Cath,

Without examing the lump it is impossible to give an accurate diagnoses.
It is best to see a dentist
