Big Baby’s Cheek Next Door At Birth?
Good evening, my son is born with a big cheek on one side, is that okay?
HelloOctavianus Pa'la, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
The size of each person's cheeks is certainly different. This is caused by fat factors on the cheeks, muscles and joints around the face, or the occurrence of infections in the teeth and mouth. The habit of chewing on one side usually can also cause the muscles on that side to become bigger.
Large cheeks next to the baby, if there are no complaints felt it should not be dangerous. But if you feel worried or if over time begins to appear complaints such as pain in the cheek, the emergence of a lump, fever, etc., then I suggest consulting a pediatrician. Later, pediatricians will conduct interviews, physical examinations and supporting examinations if needed.
Thank you, hope that helps ..
