One Side Of The Cheek And A Lump Behind The Ear?
Evening. Sorry I want to ask. My left cheek is big from 4th grade. Estimated 13 years. At the bottom of the ear exactly. And if you bite the tooth, the bulge is more visible and hard but doesn’t hurt. Even pressing it doesn’t hurt. Why is that dangerous or not y? The length is 2 or 3 cm.
Hi Shu Uemera.. Thank you for the question.
If we look at there are no body parts that are truly symmetrical and exactly the same on the left and right. Your big one cheek can be normal and influenced by fat, muscle, or nerve factors. The part of the mouth that is used for chewing continuously can cause the side muscles to enlarge and this is normal. It can also occur because the left cheek fat is thicker than the right cheek. Another factor that affects and needs attention is if the swelling on your left cheek is caused by an infection or inflammation of the teeth and gums. Symptoms that can accompany are swollen cheeks, red and swollen gums, pain and fever.
Lump under the ear, can also occur due to:
Lipoma -- growth of fatty tissue, painless, movable, palpable supple Cyst -- Sac filled with fluid Enlarged salivary glands To find out more about your complaint, it is necessary to have an immediate examination. The doctor will perform a physical examination and can be supported by ultrasound or X-rays so that the diagnosis can be made. Meanwhile, avoid holding the enlarged area and keep your teeth and mouth clean
Hope it is useful
