I just did a root canal treatment for my front tooth couple days ago, and now having a bump on the gum. Not really painful but a bit swelling. What is it? Is that normal? Will that disappear within a couple of days?

Its pus coming out from that bump, go to the dentist and tell your problem. May be antibiotics have to use or dentist can remove that sinus track depending on that condition.

It may be normal. If it doesn't subside within few days then you have to revisit the dentist again.
No its normal its the sign of reinfection. Take some antibiotics and serratiopeptidase for 3-5 days. And if its persist then visit your dentist for Re RCT.
