Bump in mouth, impacted wisdom tooth

Hello. I have had dull neck/ shoulder discomfort for the past few months. This seemed to start when I noticed a small bump in the back of my mouth . I went to a dentist and they told me I have a impacted wisdom tooth . They referred me to a oral surgeon. They then told me that if it started to hurt and cause pain to let them know and they d remove it. My question is this... can a impacted wisdom tooth cause what I am experiencing? Thanks.

Impacted wisdom tooth along with infection if present can lead to the symptoms as described by you. infection in such cases spread to the path of lowest resistance and it can either progress to neck spaces or spaces around inferior of the mouth or aroud shoulder. so pain in these areas. its better to get it removed as soon as you can. in the meanwhile take amoxycillin 500mg three times a day along with voveran three times a day. do warm saline rinses 3 times a day.

wishing you healthy life
with best regards

as you said that you have neck/shoulder discomfort for past few months because of a small bump in the back of your mouth,i think you should go for complete oral examination by a specialist(oral pathologist)and consultation with your family doctor.........
take care
