, on my neighbor’s right cheek there is a swelling. I think it’s about 6cm in size. Then accompanied by difficulty swallowing and speaking and the body feels weak. Then I happened to be a student of FK too, if I thought it was a parotid tumor. Is it true? Then about the symptoms that I have described about which parotid? Pleomorphic adenoma, adenolymphoma, oncocytoma or monomorphic tumor, thank you doctor. Please answer and explain. Evening.

1 Answer:

Hi Patrick, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Swelling in the cheeks can be caused by a variety of things, from minor causes to potentially life-threatening ones. Swelling of the cheeks can be caused by infections of the teeth, gums or lymph nodes, dental abscesses, mumps, diphtheria and salivary gland infections. These conditions, or just tooth pain without swelling, can make it difficult for people to swallow, unable to speak because of the pain. And due to reduced food intake, symptoms of weakness also arise. If the pain makes the patient lazy to brush his teeth or if the pain is caused by the accumulation of bacteria, then the symptoms of bad breath or halitosis can also appear. Especially if the symptoms of difficulty speaking and eating are caused by swelling that reduces the size of the oral cavity.

So try to pay attention to the symptoms that your neighbors have. Is it accompanied by fever, dry mouth, swelling in the oral cavity which is covered with a membrane and all kinds of things, as well as whether you have a complete immunization history, considering that the issue of diphtheria has spread again. Usually a tumor is not the first option unless it is very obvious. The tumor will usually be followed by a history of rapidly growing lumps, a history of weight loss, sudden painless bleeding, changes in voice and risk factors such as active or passive smoking and a family history of malignancy. If a tumor is suspected, it will be known whether it is a tumor and its type through a biopsy.

So it is best to check with your neighbor to an ENT specialist first, because swelling of the cheeks does not represent a single disease. Physical examination and history taking as well as supporting examinations are needed to make a proper diagnosis. You can also tell your neighbors the possibilities other than cancer that we have mentioned, because apart from the fact that there are many conditions that resemble cancer and cancer is not the first choice, cancer itself has a bad connotation in the eyes of the public.

So, hopefully useful.
