The picture reveals the area is reddish and mild swelling. Tori would not be reddish in color. It probably is a case of sialolithiasis, which will require a confirmation by a local dentist and a radiograph
Next Steps
Visit your nearby dentist Take a radiograph

The picture creates a little confusion on the position of the growth. But in this region of the jaw bone  some people have a bony projection called a "tori" which is completely normal. A tori is present since birth.A tori does not require any treatment. If however the swelling is below the tongue( floor of mouth) it will have to be examined . As you are saying there are no associated sumptonms it is most probably a tori.
Next Steps
A clinical and xray examination will make things clear.
Health Tips
Keep a note on the size of the swelling.If it remains the same or increases.

It is not visible clinically ,but based on your history it might be Sialolithiasis(stone in salivary gland ) but it can only be confirmed after taking radiograph ,visit ur dentist for proper check up For small stones, stimulating saliva flow by sucking on a lemon or sour candies may cause the stone to pass spontaneously. In other cases where stones are small, the doctor or dentist may massage or push the stone out of the duct.
Next Steps
Visit your dentist for confirmatory finding
