It's just a bony prominence don't worry about it. The main thing you have to take care is your gums. Please get a round of teeth cleaning done and replace the missing tooth

Looks like a bony exostoses or outgrowth in the preliminary examination unless touched and felt. The only trouble it may give you in future is if you ever need dentures. It's  Routinely encountered but is this a recent growth you came across or its there since as long as you remember ? That would probably help to give a better direction to diagnosis.
Next Steps
see an oral surgeon or prosthodontist. it concerns them for future to be specific.
