Big hard lump after wisdom teeth surgery
I got my wisdom teeth removed 7 days ago. First 2 days swelling got really big, there’s a huge hard lump that hurts, went to the dentist, turns out I swell more than normal, he also said blood went into my cheeks. Swelling decreased very little by 4th day, now It’s been 6 days after surgery and there’s still a hard lump but smaller than before. should I worry about this? is this an infection?

Need not worry at all . Ice application must 3-4 times a day for 3 days. Lukewarm water saline gargles 5 times a day for 3 days . Post treatment swelling is normal and subsides gradually .
