Dentist 's  Response
It looks like you have developed a bump on your cheek due to chronic cheek biting. If the wisdom teeth is erupted and it impinges on your cheek you may go in for extraction of both your lower and upper wisdom tooth. This will relieve you of your cheek problem.

Hi, it may be a Periapical or periodontal abscess related to a tooth or it may be soft tissue swelling resulting fom cheek bite or chronic irrtation. Please get it checked by a dentist. If the swelling is biopsied it would be better. The dentist will decide about it. Take care!
