Brief Answer: Could be a abscess Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. Sorry for the delay in my response. The mass dentist found could be a pus filled abscess or a fluid filled cyst. These lesions tend to disappear without any treatment sometimes. They are not serious and do not pose any health risk unless they become big and cause pressure effects. Hope, I answered your query. Regards,
