    Hi , I have a painless small lump near my wisdom tooth which is at an angle. What do you make of the picture ? Should I show to a dentist? I’m scared of dentists.

    Looks like your upper wisdom tooth has come through, and maybe you're traumatising the cheek. Get an OPG, have dentist assess all wisdoms, and consider extractions.
