Hi, dear don't worry at all for cancerous lump.
My Diagnosis-
-Its all due to lymphadenitis of JD glands due to infected wisdom gums with chronic gingivitis.
Treatment advised by me under care of your family GP-
1-Listerine gargles x 3-4 times a day - specially post meals .
2- tb oflox-Oz 200 -antibiotics-x5 days with tb diclofenac.
3 Zytee gel locally.
After it subsides wisdom extraction by Dental Surgeon would remove your worry for lifetime.
Hope this solves your query.Well come to HCM for any more help you need.Good Night.
