Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX

If you have a painless swelling in the lower jaw, then it is a tumor which could be benign or malignant. Based on your above description, it will be hard to tell which kind it is exactly unless a complete medical evaluation is done including biopsy of a tissue from the swelling.
Ones the cause is determined, specific medical treatment will be provided.

Hope this info is helpful and wish you the best.
