General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi ! From the history, it seems that the lump in case of your friend is of quite a long duration and he has neglected by not showing himself to any doctor. In this case I would suggest your friend to meet a dental surgeon/maxilo-fascial surgeon at the earliest, and get himself treated fast, however benign the swlling might look like. Wish him good luck.
