A Lump The Size Of A Marble In The Left Neck Without Pain And Swollen And Festering Gums?
Thank you for the question.
The appearance of swelling and lumps as big as marbles in the left lower jaw, accompanied by phlegm throat, swollen gums, and suppuration may be caused by:
Tooth or gum abscess (pus-filled sac under or around teeth formed by infection, usually due to cavities)
Submandibular abscess (Ludwig angina, pus-filled sac in soft tissue of the lower jaw, often due to infection spreading from cavities)
Lymphadenitis (inflammation of lymph nodes, can occur due to Tuberculosis, cat scratch disease, syphilis, HIV, cytomegalovirus, or other infections around the head and neck)
Parotitis (inflammation of the parotid gland, which is the salivary glands located around the jaw)
Others, such as submental abscesses, skin infections, benign or malignant tumors in the oral cavity or jaw (such as tongue cancer or throat cancer), tonsillopharyngitis, contact dermatitis, allergies, immune disorders, etc.
Your condition needs to be examined immediately to the doctor so that the cause can be clearly identified, for example by blood tests, biopsy, x-rays, ultrasound, or CT scan. In this way, your doctor can give you the right treatment, including if necessary be referred to an ENT specialist, surgeon, oral surgeon, skin, and so on.
At this time, what should be done:
Compress swollen jaw with warm water
Do not over-pressure the swollen jaw or lump
Do not also get used to drinking and eating cold, artificial sweets, oily, and excessive waste
No excessive shouting
Expand to eat and drink warm, and fruits that are rich in vitamin C
Do not smoke
More diligent and clean when brushing your teeth, also clean between your teeth, then rinse with an antiseptic mouth rinse
Hope this helps ...
