DEAR DR ROBERT,
MANY THANKS FOR YOUR REPLY.
THIS SWOLLEN SITUATION DEVELOPS EVERY TIME SHE IS EATING AND CHEWING.
WHEN SHE IS NOT EATING, IT IS RECEDING AND IT LOOKS VERY MODERATELY SWOLLEN, BUT WHEN EATING/CHEWING, IT GROWS BIGGER AND CAUSES SOME DISCOMFORT AND PAIN DURING SWALLOWING.
THIS MORNING SHE GAVE BLOOOD FOR ANALYSIS TO SEE WHETHER AN INFECTION IS THERE.
THOUGH NO FEVER OR OTHER REACTION, WE KEEP WORRYING.
MANY THANKS/BEST WISHES
