Painless lump under wisdom tooth right above jaw

About 7 months ago I had my wisdom tooth on my lower left side become inflammed, I was suspose to get it takin out, but didn't. Now I noticed that under it along that line you feel that goes down to the jaw is swollen some. It does not hurt at all. Of course, like everyone else I am worried about cancer. There is nothing else swollen in my mouth.

I doubt this is cancer, but I do not know what you are waiting for to have it extracted. If it is infected the post op will be more difficult.
