YANMD, but help me decide if this is a benign cyst or a bigger problem

So this afternoon I noticed there was a hard lump in the flesh on my face. It's about an inch beneath the left corner of my mouth, and not externally visible, but if I pinch with one hand grabbing from inside my mouth I can feel it. It's not large (a quarter to half an inch, maybe), it feels smooth, there's no pain, and it moves around when I touch it. Friends and family who have had similar things in other parts of the body usually have it turn out to be a benign cyst or adenoma.
My question is, do I need to go to an urgent care clinic or something this weekend, or can I wait and see my doctor next week?
