Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sensations such as lumps, pain, and stickiness (like sticking) on the cheeks and tongue may indicate the following conditions:
Neurological disorders, such as due to Bell's palsy, stroke, post herpetic neuralgia, multiple sclerosis Disorders of the gums and oral mucosa, such as gingivitis, fungal infections, malignancies Disorders of the salivary glands around the oral cavity, such as sialadenitis, parotitis due to dislocation, rheumatoid arthritis, cracks or fractures Psychological disorders, etc. The causes of your condition cannot always be detected through a panoramic x-ray examination as you have done. Better, check your complaint directly to the nearest doctor or dentist to evaluate possible causes through a comprehensive series of examinations, including physical examination, or assisted by several other supporting tests, such as x-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and so on. If a nerve problem is suspected, your doctor may refer you to a neurologist.
For now, you can first compress the sides of your cheeks that feel uncomfortable with warm water. Avoid sleeping on the side that is experiencing complaints. Also avoid consuming foods that are too hard or sticky. Finally, always keep your teeth and oral hygiene well.
Hope this helps ...
