I had my wisdom teeth removed 2 months ago and this morning I noticed a hard lump on my lower left jaw that is now swollen and painful. What is it?

In brief: See your dentist

It sounds like there might be a high probability of an old root tip or bone fragment that got left behind.
See your dentist for x-ray. diagnosis and treatment.
