What is this hard lump inside my tongue around my piercing??

I have had my tongue pierced for about 3 1/2 years. Just recently I got this hard lump that formed around my piercing similar to that of when I first got it pierced (but it eventually went away). I've been washing with salt water thinking it might just be a minor infection (a piece of food getting stuck) but it hasn't went away completely. I went out last night and had a few beers and this morning it was bigger so I'm thinking possible yeast infection that made it bigger? I'm thinking about.getting it checked out but I wanted to find out if anyone could help before I do. Also I did take my piercing out for 3 months at one point. The hole didn't close but it did get tighter and was a little difficult to get the jewelry through at first. It's been about 6 months.since I put it back in if it helps at all.
