What it could be is not the major issue. ANY growth on your gums is not normal. GO SEE YOUR DENTIST OR A DENTIST IMMEDIATELY. If you're afraid to go, remember that avoiding the dentist or doctor will not solve the problem or make it go away and NO ONE will diagnose this over the phone. Please, seek medical attention on this!

Calcium does not build up on gums, you are confusing it with plaque. And yes, you have to remove plaque from your gums, because it allows the growth of bacteria which can be very harmful to your gums.

I used to do that all the time and it's quite fun but it can be bad for your cheekbone and gums #1 it stretches your gums which can make them tear #2 it rubs your gums hard up against your cheekbone which could push it out of place #3 it can give your gum rashes and canker sores if done to often

This means that your gums are unhealthy and are not getting proper blood flow. You need to get them healthy by stimulating them and keeping the area around the teeth clean. Flossing is not enough... get a gum stimulator and work those gums. It could mean you have gingivitis.
