Most likely it's a small growth which maybe either a fibroma or a mucocele.  Both are easily treatable with a minor surgical procedure involving no pain and very little healing time.  The whole process won't take more than 30 min.
Next Steps
See your dentist for an accurate diagnosis and appointment.
Health Tips
Try not to chew on it any more and remember it will not go away on its own.
