sensitive gum and throat

Hi there

I am quite confused about the following as i am not sure if this is a dental condition or something else.

Last week i woke up with a sore throat, but only on the left part of my throat. My left lymph gland also felt sensitive. When pressing on the lower jaw' s gum, towards the back, there is a bit of pain and also a lump/bump (inner aspect toward the tongue). When i press hard on it (just sensitive, not very painful) it' s almost blister like,ie. as though there is a tiny bit of fluid maybe? i cannot see th " bubble"  but it feels like it.

I am 25 btw. I really dont want to think it' s wisdom tooth related (i havent had mine appear yet), nor that it' s gingivitis. I' m quite finicky about oral hygiene.

please help.thx

it is possible that it is the wisdom tooth (even at 25)
See a dentist and have it checked out
