Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Tumors, in the medical realm, can refer to a benign or malignant mass (lump). Tumors that can appear in the lower jaw are very many types. Some of the most common examples are:
Tumors originating from skin tissue, such as lipomas, sebaceous cysts, dermoid cysts, epidermoid cysts, melanoma
Tumors originating from dental tissue, such as keratocystic odontogenic tumors, odontomas, odontogenic myxoma, adenomatoid odontogenic tumors, glandular odontogenic cysts, squamous odontogenic tumors
Tumors originating from other tissues, such as lymph node tumors, ameloblastoma, nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome, central giant cell granuloma, ameloblastic fibroma, and many other types
In connection with your statement, whether tumors in the lower jaw can reappear postoperatively, and whether there is other treatment that can be done to treat tumors in your lower jaw apart from surgery, the answer can only be determined after the cause of your complaint is known.
Need to be clarified first, what type of tumor did you experience before? So, what kind of symptoms are you experiencing right now?
If it is true that what you mean by tumor is a lump in the lower jaw, then, apart from the tumor, this condition can also arise due to other reasons, such as skin infections, soft tissue infections in the lower jaw, parotid gland infections, keloids, insect bite marks, swelling lymph nodes, or also due to other skin inflammation. So, what you are experiencing right now is not necessarily a tumor. Even if it is a tumor, this condition can be related to the tumor you have experienced before, or not. Therefore, handling your condition can vary greatly, it can be done with observation, administration of drugs, surgery, or other medical measures.
Because there are so many possible conditions that can cause your complaint, we recommend that you first check yourself with a doctor or surgeon so that the cause of your complaint is clear, meanwhile, you should not pressure, massage, massage, or give haphazard treatment to the lump. that appears in your lower jaw, except on the advice of a doctor who examines you directly.
Hope this helps ...
