Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

That bump seems to be an abscess collection from your explanation and the infection in your tooth has reached pulp. You should go to your dentist at the earliest, he or she will get your X-ray done and then treatment will begin. First of all, abscess drainage is a must followed by antibiotic therapy. Take care. Follow up after two days.
