Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind wisdom tooth


Avatar n tn I have a hard knot/lump on my lower right jaw bone behind my wisdom tooth which is still there. I noticed it yesterday and it makes it hard to close my mouth or eat on that side and it's painful. I just wanted to know if anyone might know what it could be. I have jaw pain from time to time which makes my wisdom tooth ache because I have TMJ, so my doctor told me last year. If anyone has any ideas let me know.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 20 year old male. I have had a hard lump behind my right ear for years least 4 or 5. It feels like part of my skull but it is not on the left side of my head so i know that it's not. I asked my doctor about it when i was younger and he said it was a swollen lymph node and should go away at some point. It never did, however, it also never caused me any discomfort so i never got it looked at again.
Avatar n tn i looked where it hurt and there is a hard bump/lump behind her ear on the bone part (not on the ear itself). i touched it and it hurts. it's about as big as an eraser on top of a pencil or a pea. it is not red or anything (skin color). i get very worried about these kind of things and will give her dr. a call but in the mean time i was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what it may be? like i said, i am worried.

Avatar m tn Hi I noticed a lump behind my ear a few years ago and went to see a doctor about it who said it was a cyst and not to worry. On Sunday I noticed it had got really big (visible, about pea sized) and then found another one at the top of my neck too. The one behind my ear is hard and painless and the one on my neck feels bigger and softer and is a bit tender.
Avatar m tn I have a little lump on my upper left gum behind my molar but further back than I imagine my wisdom tooth would be. It is painless and I am unable to move it with my tongue but if if push it with my finger it moves slightly with a little click. I have made an appointment to see the dentist but was worried so thought I'd ask your advise. You can not see the lump just feel it.
Avatar n tn I'm 44 years old. I have a hard bony lump/growth underneath the gum, behind my lower front teeth, in front of my tongue. It is very hard, does not hurt and has been very very slowly growing towards my tongue over the years. It is not growing upward. I am not a frequent visitor to the dentist (lots of bad experiences as a youngster).

660300 tn?1224793961 Hello everyone. I had a tooth and wisdom tooth removed 4 days ago and my nerve was in the middle of the root of my wisdom tooth. Needless to say the nerve was stretched so i have numbness in my chin and lip on the left side along with my gum. The weird thing is the left corner of my mouth is not numb. The surgeon stated on time would tell. I was already taking B-12 so was happy to read that it might help. i do have the itching creep crawly, burning sensation.

Avatar n tn I would be anything from schoolwork, to internet browsing, to watching tv, to eating, to even just laying down in the dark and I would get these intense sharp pains on the back of my head behind my right ear. This pain only occurs in this location and it comes and goes. At first the pains were simply a nuesance as they would come and go and weren't that bad, but lately they're getting worse causing me to stop what I'm doing until they go away.

Avatar n tn Hi, I recently had my wisdom tooth out as of an infection. I got my tooth out on Feb 19th of this year. I have had nothing but problems since it was taken out. It first started off by getting a dry socket 3 days after the procedure was done. I then started having sever pain a week later, I went back to the surgent and he found a piece of tooth that he had left behind. I have still been in serve pain since then, my oral surgent refered me to another doctor which is only a pain management doctor.
Avatar f tn I gt a life long problem with tooth decay my one wisdom tooth is rotten to the gum I'm scared 2 pull it cause I feel the pain through the I'm gona suck up and be a man and pull it now friday just wondering if I do have and infection will it go away if the tooth is extracted? I also spotted a tiny lump in my temple area yesterday but I hope that's a pimple...
Avatar m tn If you have an abscess, you'll feel a lump in your cheek near there, or if a neighboring tooth hurts when you push on it, the dentist will have to check THAT tooth out for a cavity. At least you were given penicillin for the ear, it should also take out the bacteria where your wisdoms were, takes a couple weeks for the medicine to work. Also, sometimes when a dentist gives a numbing shot, it'll hit on a nerve and make it feel bad for quite a while, but then it goes away.
Avatar m tn My only exsposure would of been oral sex her to me and me to her the sex was protected, I do remember having a small wound at the back of my gums where my wisdom tooth had caught my gum, however I didn't think it was a risk as I was only licking the outside of her vagina not putting my Tongue in.
Avatar f tn I have had pain behind my tonsil, in my ear and also behind the glands in my neck. I also have a wisdom tooth which is partially exposed. I dont know if they all are related pains or if its a wisdom tooth causing bacteria to enter the tonsils and cause stones but the pressure of the pain is very annoying and painful.
215234 tn?1305146561 more indepth CT scan showed up that I have part of an old dental root/nerve still embedded in my jaw, left behind from a wisdom tooth infection many many years ago - with hindsight removed not long before all my sinus problems started - Dr thinks it looks like a pocket of infection, which keeps flaring up if I'm run down, probably the root cause both sinus infections AND this lymph gland infection - my lump turned out to be a very enlarged lymph gland I've been passed over to a different type
Avatar n tn I saw my dentist who noticed my lower left wisdom tooth had broken the skin. The three others were 1/2 way out. I elected to have all the wis. teeth removed. I had it done on 3/31 and took Penicillin 500mg for 7 days 4 X a day. I had localized pain afterward again on the left side only. The oral surgeoan treated it as a dry socket. He packed it and everything felt fine for awhile but after the packing came out, the pain returned.
Avatar f tn With my tongue I can feel a fairly hard lump in the location where my wisdom tooth would have been. (Removed all four wisdom teeth 25 years ago....I'm 43 now). Please help!!! Any ideas?? I can't see the periodontist until next month. Oral cancer? HPV? Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Avatar n tn I have 2 cerecs. First one no trouble. It's on a smaller-looking wisdom tooth. Last one on a 6-yr. old molar (first large molar). Pain lasted one year, then went away. However I have what seems to be "traveling tooth sensitivity" on all crowned molars, both cerec and traditional porcelain.
Avatar n tn Its just thinking back I know I had a few small cuts in my mouth nothing wide open or blood gushing just from biting the inside of my cheek and then one where my wisdom tooth has scraped my gum. Weird things have happened after that event like I've never experienced before such as 2 yeast infections, a weird purplish rash that looked like a hickey, sporadic itching, and the peasized lump that is still there and has been since july31 if not sooner.
Avatar n tn They are part of the lymphatic system and can swell during a throat infection or, in my case, wisdom tooth problems. If you were in Amsterdam, my bet is you have a sore throat from a visit to the Grasshopper cafe ;o). Even if the condom split, the chances of catching anything are very, very slim. Go to the GUM clinic for reassurance. Best of luck.
