So I got one of my teeth taken out in February and it hurt on the other side of my mouth really badly that week.

So about two weeks after the extraction, I noticed a bump on the top of the gumline on the other side of my mouth (same tooth but on the left). It not near the tooth, closer to my nose/cheekbone.

Now it doesn't hurt just being there. If I press on it, there is pressure on the tooth below it and that's annoying. However, the tooth doesn't hurt independently, only pressure if I press the bump.

The bump is very hard and probably the size of my fingernail.

Any idea what this could be?
