Unhappy Lumps...multiple

Basically I smoked for about a year, 12 a day and gave up recently. Since I have discovered a lump at the base of the gum in my lower jaw. It is small, about the size of a lentil, hard but moveable and I haven't noticed any pain or significant growth...maybe a millimeter or two in 3 weeks. Not long after noticing the small lump I stumbled upon a much larger lump at the back of my tongue dead center, (about the size of a pea). Now the lump at the back may have been there since I was born its that far back I can't be certain but it's fixed in place, once again no pain and I haven't noticed any growth in that either...basically given that i smoked for a year should I be concerned...I'm going to the doctor on monday but i'd like to get some sleep before then.
