I had all wisdom teeth removed 1 week ago.There's a little ball of something inside the gums of my right cheek.Hurts to touch, open my jaw all the way? It's on the side of the teeth- not my jawline

In brief: Swelling

Probably swelling near the incision of a lower widsom tooth.
Within normal limits. See your oral surgeon if symptoms persist.

In brief: Hard to tell

Without seeing the ball it is hard to tell what it might be.
... I would suggest having the dentist that removed the wisdom teeth take a look.
