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.
