    Hi. 30 year old male and I’ve recently noticed a lump with a small hole just past wear my wisdom tooth should be growing (it’s come through on other side)

    Does it look like it’s coming through or is my top wisdom tooth starting to catch my cheek? It’s not that painful but I do keep biting the area and that’s quite sore.

    Dentist appointment booked next week but wanted some opinions as I’m petrified of having surgery.

    Could be impingement from an upper wisdom tooth. Anyway, need an OPG to see what's there. The dentist is not going to do anything apart from consultation at that first appointment, and discuss your options.
