I have excrutiating pain in my jaw in front of my ear and have swollen glands behind my ear and neck. The pain seems worse after eating. Could this be a parotid salivary gland blockage or cyst? I don't have a fever or any other symptoms and haven't had a
Sialadenitis: The history is indeed suspicious for parotid infection (parotitis) and/or stone in the parotid duct, but it is not clear exactly what is going on. Other possibilities include neck abscess or lymphadenitis. All of these are pretty high acuity problems that warrant prescription medication treatment. I would consider ENT evaluation, or see your primary. If it's bad, er evaluation is appropriate. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Found a painful cyst just behind the back part of my jaw where it curves upward. Seems to have formed overnight, how should I treat?
Lymph node: Such a finding is not likely to be a cyst. It would almost certainly be a tonsillar lymph node. Enlargement usually indicates that the throat is fighting off infection. If there are no other symptoms then it generally can just be watched. If associated with persistent rapid growth, severe pain, high fever, or severe sore throat, then a medical exam is warranted. ...Read more

My wife (31) has developed a cyst below her jaw / near neck. Nothing was diagnosed in FNAC. Drs are suggesting surgery. Is there any medication
IncystOnExplanation: Without a definite diagnosis it would be hard to pick a specific medication. I presume some kind of radiologic study was done? (CT, MRI?). If fine needle aspirates are inconclusive & there is concern over this "cyst, " then excision is a reasonable option. You could always decide to 'wait & see' what happens- but I'd suggest you discuss this in detail with your doctors. Any doubts? Think: 2nd opinion. ...Read more
Will I need facial reconstruction after my cyst is removed? Is facial reconstruction necessary for everyone who has a facial or oral disfigurement? I recently discovered I had a benign cyst during a routine physical. Due to the fact that it is in my jaw a
Without: Without knowing the details of your mass, it's really hard to say whether or not you would need reconstruction after your cyst removal surgery. In many cases the reconstruction involves closing the tissue defect that results from removing the original mass. Whether or not the mass itself even needs to be removed depends on what it is. If you're not sure if you want it removed you could consider getting a second opinion from another surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My friend had removed cyst recently from front part of lower jaw the biopsy report indicates it as a keratocyst. Is that dangerous?
Usually not.: Keratocysts are considered benign. Large keratocysts can however cause local bone and soft tissue damage. They also have a tendency to recur if not completely excised. Patients with nevoid basal cell carcinoma sydrome (Gorlin syndrome) may develop multiple keratocysts. ...Read more
I get under the skin pimple/cysts just under my jaw line. I get about 5 and they last months before disappearing and new ones showing up.
What do you suggest if my friend had removed cyst recently from front part of lower jaw the biopsy report indicates it as a keratocyst are they dangerous please help?
Keratocyst: Odontogenic keratocysts do have a likelihood of recurring, and sometimes this is years afterward. It is pretty rare for these to develop cancer, but that has been reported in a very few cases. Even if it was completely removed, your friend should definitely have longterm continued follow up, to make sure it does not recur. She may want second opinion from a specialist. ...Read more
