Outgrowth caused by parasite in cheek (4)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this is a double definition.

'outgrowth caused by parasite' is the first definition.
(parasitic growth on a plant)

'cheek' is the second definition.
(both can mean outrageous behaviour)

'in' is the link.

(Other definitions for gall that I've seen before include "Impudence, cheek" , "Impertinence" , "Impudence; bitterness" , "This bladder is attached to the liver and stores bile" , "Growth on tree; bile; resentment" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
