Suggest remedy for lumps in jaw

I'm a 27 year old female, and I'm having issues with my right lower jaw, and the right side of my neck. Im pretty sure its my right lower wisdom tooth thats causing my jaw pain, but, I'm not so sure about the neck and throat pain. My neck/throat isn't too painful, just mildly uncomfortable when i swallow. When I turn my head to the left, thats when the pain hits. There is also a small lump on my esophagus/trachea. I'm not really sure what it's called so dont quote me on what it is :) But I can feel it when I swallow, feel it with my fingers, but, it cant be seen. I have a strong history of cancer in my family, and I'm a smoker. I've been noticing this pain and lump for about 2 months now. I've had no cough, or fever, and only a mild sore throat where the lump is, only when I swallow.

Hi,Dear,Thanks for the query to HCM .I studied your query in depth.I feel concerned about it,as you have a family history.In my opinion ,its a case of -Gingival Peri-Coronitis with infalmmation and Cervical-node lymphadenitis,cuased by the partially erupted impacted 3rd molar-with Trismus-the spasm of the neck muscles.The swelling on the trachea/oesophagus-felt is due to the lymphadenits of the regional nodes which drain 3r rt molar area.Treatment-REmedy-a-I would have treated it-with Tb-NSAIDs-, and Antibiotics, with good oral /throat gargles with listerin-.Once the infection and peri-coronitis reduced-then, X-ary of the 3 rd rt molar with biopsy of the gingival tissue-to rule out any cancerous growth simultaneously needs to be ruled-which is the remote possibility almost to nil.Hope this would relieve your worry and pains.But for this I would advise you to take-Dental Surgeons opinion ideally.Thanking once again.Have a good day.
