White bump near back molar

Hello,
I was recently at the dentist, and he found a small white raise area near by back right bottom molar.  He said it looked like traumatized tissue.  He told me not to "loose sleep over it", and to come back in about a month to have it checked out.  Either it should get smaller, or have to be removed.
I didnt even know the bump was there, so its not painful at all.  I was diagnosed with TMJ a couple of months ago....could that have something to do with it?
What can it be?
Thank you for your answer in advance.

The lesion described appears to be located in edentulous area of third molar. It's commonly associated with upper teeth irritation. TMJ has nothing to do with it.
