Broken File? Choice: Endodontist vs Dentist

Around a year ago I had two root canals done (one at the top right and top left), the one on the right has a crown on it. The one on the left does not have a crown on it but I have been noticing that a bump appears on the gum right above the tooth.

The bump is small but gets kinda big sometimes and it has popped twice and the only thing to come out is blood. The bump usually never hurts but I have gargled salt and warm water to sorta dry it out. The bump comes and goes I usually have the bump like 2 weeks and then it goes away like it disappears and then it we come back two days later.

My family friend said that it is a sort of dental abcess. Is this true? What can I do to make it stop? ...Visitor from LA

It may be related to the root canal you had done, or it may be a different tooth. Obviously it is an infection which needs attention. It is nothing that will go away on its own. Get new x-rays and see what is happening.
