Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question. Can you take a picture of what you're seeing and post it here?

I'm sorry for my delay. A picture can be posted with the paper clip icon that can be found just above the area where you actively type. I'll be honest and say that an abscessed tooth typically doesn't cause an outward type lesion on the lower jaw area. I would be concerned that what you may be seeing is some other pathology going on. Cancers unfortunately are probably the biggest concern.
