Lump on cheek after wasp bite. Discomfort when chewing. What is it?

Around six years ago, I was stung by a wasp on the right side of my face near my ear on my cheek. A lump started to grow under the skin and right now it is around the size of a large thumbnail. It doesn t cause any bother and I went to the doctor who said it didn t look serious a few years ago and referred me to an appointment with a professional but I never made the appointment. Now, it is starting to be uncomfortable when I chew cause its near my jawline/ teeth . I just want to know what it is??? Thanks
