The Relationship Between A Lump On The Chin With A Toothache Until It Festers?
I want to ask, a few months ago I had a toothache until the pus moved to swelling under the chin. Then I went to treatment and recovered. But lately my chin has been growing a lump even though my teeth are fine. Is this the effect of a toothache a few months ago or what?
Thanks for the question. The lump that appears on your chin today is unlikely to be related to your condition a few months ago. A lump on the chin can be caused by a variety of health conditions that are not always serious. Some of the causes are:
lipoma or benign growth of fatty tissue
abscess or collection of pus under the skin due to infection
swollen lymph nodes
Further examination by a doctor is needed to determine the cause of this lump. Therefore, please consult your doctor first. The doctor needs to know more about the complaints of this lump and examine the lump in question so that the doctor can determine the next treatment.
For the time being, avoid popping these lumps. Keep the skin around these bumps clean and dry.
