I'm on day 6 after removing impacted wisdom tooth. Everything feels fine, swelling on the cheek is almost gone. Don't feel pain for most of the time and if i do its 3/10 pain. However, after my tightness went away i notice weird lump nect to the stitches. Can someone help me indentify it? After tooth removal i got antibiotics and mouthwash from pharmacy to use after surgery. I don't think lump causes any pain, it's annoying becasue keep biting on it when trying to fully close my mouth as it gets on thr way between teeth.

Good day

This is nothing to worry about. Sometimes the tissue forms a "knot or lump" due to the stitches. Over time this will disappear as healing progresses.
