small hard bump after wisdom teeth extraction

I have a small hard bump on the inside of my cheek after wisdom teeth extraction. The lump I can move it up and down with my tounge it dont hurt it is just sore/tender and kinda feels like a canker sore. when I take the motrin and Vicodin the doc gave me I barely or not at all notice it what is it what do I do?

Re: small hard bump after wisdom teeth extraction

It's probably nothing to worry about. You may have bit your check while you were numb and didn't realize it. It could be a "canker sore". It could also just be an area that was irritated during the extraction. Give it a little time and see if it gets better over the next couple of weeks. If it becomes painful or increases significantly in size then see your dentist, but my guess is that it will go away on its own. Good Luck!
