Yellow pus, bleeding from gum, swollen gums, oral cancer?

I have been getting yellow pus and blood coming from my mouth (gum), It has formed a hole and every 3/4 weeks my whole side of my mouth swells up and my gum has been swollen for 6-8 weeks. I have a good oral hygene and brush my teeth and use mouthwash . The tooth above is tender when I touch it. I Believe it may be a abcess but I am extremely scared of needles so I try and avoid the dentist . Could It be oral cancer , abcess or something else ?. I do understand that I need to see a dentist, but is there a non needle solution to my problem

I believe you are suffering from pyorrhoea and this calls for proper treatment. I donot think it to be malignant. You should have expert opinion of a dentist. It is curable and calls for proper oral hygeine. In herbal medicines we use combinations that ensure eradication of pyogenic lession and astringent herbs which prevent loosening of gums and provide strength to teeth and high dose of vit. C.
Internally trifla guggul and kaishore guggul provide anti biotic cover. Crush tab. G32 and use it as manjan and dissolve same tablet in water for gargles. Aamla will provide vit. C in natural form.
You must brush your teeth before going to bed.

Your complaints points towards an oral infection. It may be gum infection or infection of the tooth or tooth socket. It may get transformed into an abscess and erode the jaw bone. So emergency treatment is needed. Please do not delay.
