Bump on gums due to bad tooth

I have a bump on my gums that won't go away, and I had a bad tooth that fell out on its own however, it's taking my gums a long time to heal. What could this bump be....

Bump in the gum is because of bad tooth. According to you the decayed tooth has fallen out itself but may be crown part has fallen out but root is still inside which is infected and that is why bump is not going as healing is not taking place. so visit your dentist and get the xray done. if root is still inside then it has to be pulled out.
