Swollen bump behind the molar, pain on chewing food, drinking. Worrisome?

There s been a bump right behind my left molar, sort of looks like a big pimple I guess like s swollen little ball. Its lasted about 4 days now, at one point it was fairly big and hurt to chew food and occasionally drink. Now it s fairly small like size of a pea. Should I be worried? I was looking at canker sores and it didnt help determine of this were one or not.

Thanks for posting your query.

I do not see a reason for you to be worried. The most common cause of this symptom is an aphthous ulcer.

I suggest you to take multivitamin supplements for a month like Capsule becosules daily one tablet after food.

The bump should be gone soon. Consume plenty of fruits and salads.

Get well soon.
