Could the lump on hard palate be a sign of acute sinus infection or sinus cyst?

For the past three days this painful lump appear in the center of my hard palate. Is very painful as well as my front teeth, and also my nose. It seems that is related to my sinus, can this be an acute sinus infection. I'm worry that it might be a sinus cyst. I had this before like three months ago, it did resolved on its own but this one it's lasting too long and is too painful to resist. Will I need antibiotics or just home remedy.

Hi. No home remedy at all. This problem needs a CT scan evaluation as the area you have described has specific lumps which need removal in-toto, meaning total removal to avoid the recurrence. Start with the antibiotics to get the infection resolved and get this operated.
