Swollen Hard Lump On Gums HELP!!

I've had a deepy tooth decay for around 1 year. In the early stages of the decay there were the usual symptoms, Pus/Swollen Gums/etc. After a while. The symptoms subsided and my gums started to develope a hard lump next to the decayed tooth (no pain). After getting the tooth extracted and taking antibiotics. The hard lump decreased drastically (but never completely went away). Now a month after the extraction. One day i was pushing on (whats left of the lump) and playing with it. The lump on my gums came back to the stage where it was before i gotten to tooth extracted. What can this be??

Re: Swollen Hard Lump On Gums HELP!!

My best guess is that you have an abscess and need antibiotics again....
Hope you have made a dental appointment!

regards, Sue
