Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

you should go to the hospital if you are in severe pain

why do you say you have a tumor?

you know you have a tumor there?

if you clench your jaw frequently, you could have inflammation of your TMJ joint.

your dentist should have given you some pain medication.

they should have given you a copy of that jaw xray report.

you should get a neck CT scan which can look at that area as well and see if bone is eaten or destroyed

did you smoke before?

go back to the hospital and ask for a ct scan of my neck and exray
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Last time they didn't even exray me just said I needed a specialist the hospital was a waste of time and money
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

you can try to call the surgeon to see if they will be willing to call you in stronger pain medications

if he is not willing to call you in stronger pain medications

you can go to the ER and tell them you have a tumor in your jaw and give them your dentist name

and ask them for a neck CT scan

they may admit you to the hospital for pain control and have the oral surgeon at the hospital there see you for evaluation or ENT doctor at the hospital if you have a mass eating away at your mandibular bone

the hospital most likely has cancer doctors there as well who could see you in the hospital as well

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

the diagnosis, scans and evaluation by cancer doctors most likely go faster if you were just admitted into the hospital

and they could give you stronger pain medications while you were in the hospital

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
