hi and thank for the query,
\examination of a mass, depending on the growth an nature could conceal particular properties of this mass. the growth speed, associated signs and symptoms like tiredness
and weight loss
, presence or absence of fever
are very important in the evaluation pocess of this mass. ASt times a clinical examination on its own might not be sufficient. A Ct scan
f the head especially around this region could be a great tools to actually proof the presence of the mass, describe the borrs, the consistencyand giev an idea of the intergrity of the neighbouring structures/
Meeting an ENT surgeon or Odonotostomatologist for advice and probable CT scans could be helpful.
Thanks and best regards,
