Common Questions and Answers about Abscess gum cancer

abscess

Avatar f tn I have a lump on my upper gum for the last month. I had a crown removed three weeks ago. I've taken pencillian twice already. The pain and the lump is still there. When I press on it it hurts a lot. I cannot eat on that side. My Dentist took a couple of x-rays back then and gave me pencillian. Nothing has changed. Recently I notice a dark circle on the upper roof of that side. I touched it and it hurts. It has not grown in size..What to do next?
Avatar m tn I am 27 weeks pregnant and have become obsessed with overexagerating my health (I have talked myself into this being jaw bone cancer..........). My OB wants me to wait, if I can, to get all of this done after my baby is born in April. Do you think this is something I should wait on or get checked with xrays, etc? Any advise is greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Sounds like it might be periodontal since there is bleeding and mobility, your exam should verify that, as far as the lesion goes (the dark spot) it appears your dentist is monitoring that and that there has been no change, in which case I'd look more for an individual abscess or possible gum disease situation,
Avatar f tn I have a dentist appointment coming up and I want to get some answers and help. Should I worry about jaw cancer, or is it likely to be a simple tooth abcess that he can treat easily? Please help. Thank you in advance.
Avatar f tn My lower right canine tooth has suddenly developed a little white dot that can be seen through the gum, and it's pretty sore. It feel like I have a cancer sore there (I tend to get a lot of them), but this almost seems to be on the tooth root, -under- the gum. I had an absess on an upper tooth years ago, and this pain is not like that at all. The absess was a deep, terrible, throbbing pain. This almost feel more like a pin stuck into it.
Avatar f tn I had a sore on my gum several weeks ago that filled like an abscess, although it wasn't in any way painful. I gently pressed the sore and it drained. Since then, I have had to press it to drain it every 2-3 days. I hadn't realised how much time had passed but it must be at least 6 weeks now. The sore is in front of a tooth that has a cavity in the jaw bone below as a result of an infection when the tooth was filled many years ago.
Avatar f tn My dentist said it wasn't bone/tooth it is gum/soft tissue issue. No pain, abscess, swelling or inflammation. He wants me to see a periodontist, I will. But, I was wondering, ahead of appointment ,what other possibilities than a cancerous tumor? The color isn't any different from the rest of my gums. It is smooth. Can it be just excess hard fibrous tissue growth or something less frightening than cancer? Thank you.
Avatar n tn I did not touch it now for 2 days. No change. About 2 weeks before I discovered it, I had a little gum abscess on right side and felt very tired for about 3 days for no reason. I am very scared of cancer and it is ruining every day of my life. I can stand the wait if it disappears or not. What are the chances it is serious? How long does it usually take for the lump to go away if you stop touching it completely? Can I help it somehow? ( special nutrition, vitamines or sauna?
Avatar f tn This morning she says that she has a hole in her gum. There is no sign as to what casued the abscess. Before we left the hospital, the microbiolgy report had not come back. We will follow up on Monday or Tuesday with the doctor. The doctors say they don't know what caused this. I know that science has come a long way, but is it ridiculous not to have a mircrobiology report back within a few days?
Avatar n tn Last Friday he left work in severe pain, swollen mouth, what he thought was a piece of tooth or root poking through his gum and a sore on the bottom of his tongue from what he thought caused by the abrasion from the 'root'. He went to the Dentist on Monday & they indicated that he had a abscess & that it was part of his jaw bone, not a root or piece of tooth, exposed. They referred him back to the Periodontist today.
1842266 tn?1318864059 Ive had an abscessed tooth and got that extracted. 2 of my teeth are broken to the gum and one is just the shell of the tooth nothing inside and half broken. I dont have swelling or bleeding gums , I dont have pain just broken decaying teeth.
Avatar n tn Nicorette really helped me quit Copenhagen…but now I’m obviously addicted to the gum…The gum is obviously better than Copenhagen for many reasons..however..I can tell you that my blood pressure has risen, and I have a low white blood cell count because of the gum. I get sick all the time due to this. If I over chew it I’ll get a sore throat and eventually a sinus infection. My doctor always asked me ..”do you smoke?” I tell him no…he doesn’t know I use any tobacco products.
219241 tn?1413541365 I saw my dentist again on Monday, where we again discussed the 'pimple thingy' on my gum. He said he would do a root canal to see if this tooth was actually infected. He had done a CO2 test on it the week before and it had been dead. He started the root canal and MAN! (now I hope you aren't eating your dinner) the amount of pus that came out of my head was incredible...try 10 minutes of it! In the end he kept shaking his head, put a plug in it and took an xray.
Avatar m tn I went to the dentist the other day because I have this flat, raised, abscess looking bum on my bottom front gum line. It does not hurt, but I have noticed it has been there for a couple of months. The dentist took one look, said it was a wart, and told me that he wanted to remove it asap. He explained that I could of gotten it from something simple as kissing an infected person, to oral sex.

189372 tn?1219836958 I can now breath much better through my nose although to be honest I do not feel much better, or dare I say worse. Immediately after the operation I had sores on my tongue and an abscess on my top tooth . Worst of all I have had extremely bad heartburn/Indigestion since the operation and my wind pipe has been painful. At a guess I would say its ulcerated, as with my mouth if the skin is broken it normally means ulcer time.
Avatar f tn My chihuahua is on Tramadol plus antibiotics, as no mention of abscess mentioned but gum disease, “gingivitis” I am thinking to slit the pills 3/4 – 1! 1 for chihuahua and 1/3 of pill (Clinicin) 25mgs to mini Daschund (the one I thought surely was the worst! As she would be first in line for gum disease! I know that problems with teeth can effect the whole body!!! I am beginning to blame myself , as I feed them right, liquid minerals, “Arthodex minerals and vitamins, pure RO water!
Avatar f tn My gums are still swollen and irritated at the front two teeth to the point where my bottom teeth are hitting my top gum (I have a serious overbite). To compound this, after I'd seen my family doctor, my gums became very sore on my right side directly behind my molar. It hurts to chew there and is more irritated on the bottom jaw than in the upper jaw. With my tongue I can feel a fairly hard lump in the location where my wisdom tooth would have been.
219241 tn?1413541365 I've been not around much and really probably have to disappear again soon but wanted to comment. My sister has a "dead tooth". Had it since her pre-teens. It on occasion does the pimple thing. Her dentist said its from that dead tooth. That for years she had this pocket of puss trapped up there and it comes out occasionally from time to time in the form of this pimple. Its her front tooth so she is reluctant to get it removed. She also has the nose bleeds.

279234 tn?1363108849 My dentist also believes that some of my pain wasn't all because of the abscess. The abscess occurred because of a bad filling. I'm getting it done tomorrow. He thought that the pain in the upper jaw,tongue,throat, was because of something unrelated, and I'm suppose to discuss this with the doctor tomorrow. Pray for my soul.
Avatar f tn Oh, so its gotten smaller? Interesting. Well the good news is that most likely it isn't cancer as cancer usually won't shrink in size without treatment. It may be some type of residual infection or inflammation from the toothbrush and its starting to heal up. A tori definitely won't change in size. Sorry, can't rule anything out but that's a good sign.
Avatar f tn Because it's tough to diagnose cancer just by looking or feeling! In a dog, there is a 50-50 chance that it is cancer vs. not cancer. And of course, it's could really be a result of the bite. Call me biased (I'm a surgeon), but it is definitely possible to remove the mass, benign or malignant, with surgery. Vets do that all the time! I am assuming she is not spayed. At the same time, I would suggest spaying her.
131114 tn?1380086790 Jade was Very sick with herpes run wild when we first met her, along with a fungal disease making her eyes run and once we got that under control the crust on her nose cleared up. Or, it might be cancer. White kitties with that little pink nose and ears are most susceptible to cancer in those areas. Jade is lucky to have a black nose, but her ears were not spared. They were cancerous right off and we had them amputated in 09.
Avatar n tn No I am not a medical person, I am a 49 year old woman who three years ago was was diagnosed with Stage III ovarian cancer. My journey has taught me much on the subject. I like to say "my heart may have saved my life" - My story takes a few twists & turns & I will try and get right to the point, but I have been telling my story to many women as part of the NOCC in hopes to bring awareness to this "Disease that Whispers". So...
Avatar f tn She is very healthy (other than that little abscess incident!) and maintains a good weight of about 9lbs, Her fur is shiny and soft and she seems content....so, am I worrying about nothing? Savas: I certainly appreciate all the comments you have posted and am glad to hear that you have rebounded from your recent gallbladder surgery (or at least on the way back up).
Avatar f tn I looked in my mouth last night and it looks like I have a wart or abscess on my gum on the bottom right behind my tooth. My gums on my cheeks seems as if they are swollen on each side inside my mouth and there is a white film like substance on them. I have read how hard it is to detect Oral Cancer. I contacted the Ear nose and throat clinic and they said they do not test for Oral Cancer. I just don’t know what to do next as far as getting tested for Oral HPV Im just at a loss.
Avatar n tn The dentist who cured my gum injected antiseptic solution to clean it, and the gum is normal now. The implant is still well attached to remaining bone. I remember having very mild joint pain at foot fingers or hand fingers, since the first piece was installed, but I thought it's unrelated - it was not like everyday pain. Here comes the worst. In late Jun 2008 I had right ear cartilage inflammation. Been seeing 2-3 doctors.
