hello, the lesion u had is most probably a dento-alveolar lesion: most common is abscess from infected tooth esp third molar, any cyst or jaw tumor.. the jaw bone is this region is very prone for ameloblastoma
, traumatic bone cyst, etc..
for correct diagnosis one need to go under following examination- clinical, radiographs- IOPA of infected teeth ,OPG, lat oblique,occlusal, then FNAC /incisional biopsy then as per pathologic examination treatment can be decided..
if its infected tooth abscess
origin- RCT/ extraction of involved tooth
if it is cyst or any tumor then surgical intervention is required along with involved tooth RCT
Note for any abnormal sensations/paresthesia as it will be critical factor to decide neural involvement in region..
dont delay treatment as long standing abscess can convert to cystic lesion..
most probably ur problem will resolved by RCT of infected tooth.. consul ur dentist
meanwhile maintain oral hygiene
by use of antiseptic mouthwashes and interdental aids..
