    I can understand your dilemma, you must be having a difficult time eating, swallowing, and just having a tough time. Sometimes, due to a growth in the maxilla, that is the bone of the upper jaw, there may be a swelling that could protrude into the roof of the mouth and be visible as a bump.  This occurs due to maxillary sinus cancer, which may present with other symptoms as well, such as sore in the nose, headaches, decreased sense of smell, etc.  A tooth of the upper jaw may land up with caries, which may eventually reach the root canal. This then can lead to a tooth abscess, which is normally periapical in nature, that is, which occurs around the tip of the roots of the upper tooth. This leads to a swelling on the slopes of the roof of the mouth, which normally manifests as a painful bump on roof of mouth.
    The treatment for bumps on roof of mouth will depend on the underlying cause. However, if it is causing trouble swallowing food or if it is coming in way if fabrication of a well fitting denture, then it is best to get it surgically removed. If the swelling on the other hand is due to an infection of the palate or the salivary gland, then treating the sores on roof mouth will help in receding the swelling and thus, get rid of the bump on roof of mouth. Similarly, if there is a tooth abscess, then visiting a dentist and getting it treated with the help of antibiotics and by going in for root canal treatment.
