I have a Very painful lump in my cheek thats getting worse. I have a feeling that it is a cheek abscess and I'm very worried.  How are these treated?

By draining it: If you have an abscess, the way to treat it is to have it drained. This is a very quick and easy procedure. The doctor will numb up your skin and use a sterile scalpel to open the abscess. Once it drains you will feel 100% better! Please don't wait and suffer. It will only get worse and more painful. ...Read more

I had an antibiotic and steroid injection in my butt (1 in each cheek) 20 days ago. I have a quarter sized painful lump on my right cheek. Normal??

Likely a reaction: You might have had a reaction to one of the components at the injection site. Injectables often have preservatives or other components in addition to the drug itself that can cause an inflammatory response in susceptible people. I've seen these take weeks to appear and up to 3 months to resolve. If it doesn't start improving in a few weeks, gets red/warm or you run a fever, see your doctor. ...Read more
