I just got one side of my wisdom teeth removed both upper and lower 4 days ago, which I have another one scheduled for Monday for the left side. The upper is 100% fine, which they pulled. The lower they pulled the tooth without removing the root because it was too close to the nerve. I do have some stitching in this area currently on the lower cheek. Noticed a hard lump about 1 inch between my lower jawline and cheek area. Is this normal because of swelling or something else. Currently taking Amoxicillin 500mg and Ibuprofen 600mg. Please let me know what this hard lump is, also generally on the lower side where this lump is, remains sore.

Really impossible to say what it is without seeing you. Ask your dentist today when you're in getting the other side done?
