As u said a pink spot on your right cheek . Is the cheek is swollen or the pink spot is swollen ? If the cheek is swollen it would be the upper third molar which is hurting your cheek .This will give u a mild swelling on that side. In case your in any of your teeth is decayed and if it is infected there is chances of swelling in that particular side. In case if u have third molar which is hurting the cheek due to lack of space to erupt this problem arises. And as u said about the pink spot on cheek will arise in continuous mastication forces on cheek . In this case grinding of that particular teeth for temporary relief or extraction of that teeth in case third molar will give u re leaf. Following pain killers and a topical gel like mucopain or dologel . so kindly consult your dentist and get the needful treatment done.
take care

Dentist Dr. Bibhu Dutt Nanda's  Response
hello and welcome to hcm forum,
you have not mentioned about the nature of pain you are experiencing, therefore i won't be able to put up a diagnosis for you, but i would suggest you continue using an antiseptic mouth wash (2-3 times/day),
avoid hot or spicy food for a while,
take an anti-inflammatory to relieve pain,
if its a tooth related problem then your dentist might take an x-ray of the concerned tooth, but if its a soft-tissue related problem,then oral medication and mouth rinses are the only resort to treat your problem.
i wish you good health.
take care.
