Intense pain at the back of mouth, small lump at the palate side, no relief with medicine. Worrisome?

I had an intense pain in the right side at the back of the mouth. The first dentist I saw said it is an infection. Took antibiotics for the 3 day course. The pain was the same. After 2-3 days more, the pain subsided on its own. Now I have a small lump on the palate side at the back of the mouth. It is not painful but is not going away or getting bigger for the past 3 weeks. the OPG xray showed that the wisdom tooth is impacted but it s not hurting right now. I am worried what that bump could be

As per information you have given this lump is a thing of concern. If it is due to wisdom tooth then you should go for removal of this impacted tooth.For the time being you can do warm saline rinses four times a day and should avoid starchy food.This will certainly reduce the swelling and provide you relief.
