What is this please?

Dec 12, 2022
Earlier this year, from time to time, my right jaw would seize up when chewing and I’d have to stop eating.

This hasn’t happened recently, but, around the same time, I discovered a unilateral, painless, swelling behind my last mandibular right molar. I’ve had it for months now, but the dentist I saw couldn’t detect anything, although I can see it in photos.

When I place my tongue behind the molar, I can feel a semi-hard fleshy mound.

Any assistance would be very much appreciated, as it’s now virtually impossible to see a dentist where I live.
