I had an op on 3rd on July with extracting all 4 wisdom tooth. After a lot of swelling and pain 2 weeks later everything went back to normal. On 9th of August a hard lump on the left cheek appeared, I had panoramic which showed nothing on the teeth or jaws, I had an ultrasound which showed it was 3 cm and had fluid or blood in it. I am still taking antibiotics for 10 days now it doesn't get any better its really hard and i am in pain. The doc said to wait or it to go away What should I do? I am really scared.

Don't be much worried about it though I can understand how annoying it would be. One of my friends has recently removed them as they are just a simple fatty deposit. Go to a doctor or dermatologist to have it looked as though.
