Face and Jaw Surgery
I have a cyst on the top of my jaw bone. But latley just under my jaw, below the cyst it is very tender. I don`t feel or see any thing different. The cyst itself is not tender. But could the problem be coming from the cyst?
Pathologic entities (i.e., a cyst) should never be left unattended or be neglected due to their potential to cause all kinds of different problems. Unless there is a clear indication to not intervene surgically, it is probably most appropriate to remove these abnormal lesions. I would recommend that you see a qualified professional to determine the need for surgical intervention and elimination of this problem.
