Swelling: Have you have an evaluation by an oral surgeon? They are well trained in evaluating, diagnosing and treating problems like yours.

Next step: Time to take the next step. Schedule appointments with both Specialist ENT and with Oral Medicine Specialist. They will want to see your now to establish base-line, and then again the next time your cheek swells up.
