Suggest remedy for lumps in tooth

Hello I will be 41 within few mths/ 5'5ft tall & 145lb. One c-section surgery of twins 5 yrs ago. I am a smoker (unfortunetly), advent exerciser and no illnesses. About a yr and half ago I had a moler tooth pulled and months later a bump or lump started appearing on same side of pulled tooth right under my skin on my cheek. It's not painful and started off small & unnoticeable but is getting bigger. I have been referred to a Dermatologist who want to perform surgery and cut on my face which would leave a scar. Wouldn't an oral surgeon be best for this job and which procedure of removal would you medically suggest? Simply trying to seek the best solution for me. I am awaiting response and thank you for your time.
