Hello Fadli! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Swelling in the jaw area can be caused by various conditions, such as enlarged lymph nodes, a collection of pus in the tissue (abscess), benign tumors, or malignant tumors (cancer). You need to be examined directly by a doctor to determine the suspicious cause. The doctor will check the size of the swelling that you experience, are there any signs of inflammation, how consistent (for example hard or chewy), how the limit, pain or not, and so on. After determining your suspicions, your doctor will refer you to the appropriate specialist. The specialist doctor will determine whether further examination or certain actions are needed. The doctor will explain to you what steps should be taken. Can return to normal or not will depend on the severity of tissue damage that has occurred. You can ask in more detail the doctor who examined you.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
