Cheeks wont stop swelling , no pain. Anyone have any idea what may be wrong with me

Hi, firstly sorry if this is posted in the incorrect board. I am newley registered to these forums, seeking any advice on what may be wrong with me.

i appear to have a similar problem. For approximatley a year my left cheek has been swollen, on the inside. no pain, though a bit of sensitivity on my top left gum, where a wisdom tooth is coming through. over the year this swelling has never went down, and slowly got bigger. No1 can really see it apart from me, unless i ask them to look very closely.

However over the last few weeks i have felt the other cheek swelling too. Again no pain, however when i shave my skin feels extremely sensitive and i feel as if my face is massive. If i move my tongue up and down inside my cheek i can feel what appears to be a swollen muscle? .. on both cheeks now. Also it feels as if the bit underneath my chin where my windpupe is has 2 solid oval objects in it? The swelling has now spread up to my just below my eyes (where the cheekbone just ends and there is a hole where my eye is. and I am extremely scared my eyes are going to be swollen over. Have been to see an ear nose and throat specialist who stuck a scope up my nose, gave me all clear on that, and had no idea why my cheek was swollen

I am due to see a oral surgeon maxollifacial(sp?) specialist in a few weeks. This is having a severe impact on my confidence now and is really really making me feel down. The swelling isnt very evident on the outside.., appears only i notice it.. but thats enough to be making me feel totally crap right now, it does feel mostly inside. But because it has never stopped and now my other cheek has started to swell i am extremely frightned that my face is never going to return to normal, and that there is something wrong with me (facial tumor perhaps?) ... sorry for the long winded post, I am just at my wits end and dont know what is wrong with me.

Any advice given is greatley appreciated.

Hi ,

I have very similar symptoms to what you described.Still Struggling to make a plan on who to show regarding this .This is most likely not a dental issue as I have swollen cheeks on the side of mouth and extending to the nostrils level more prominent near the side of mouth .

Could you describe about the follow up or if this was cured.

Thanks in Advance.

Have any of you folks found a solution to this? I am experiencing the identical symptoms for about 5 weeks now. Swelling is on both of my cheeks, itís painless, with left side much more prominent. I am depressed beyond believe! I saw two doctors who are puzzled by this condition; both of them stated that theyíve never seen anything like this in their extensive practice. This swelling makes me look 10 years older, I just want to break the mirror everywhere I look at myself. I am 29 and cannot imagine myself being dealing with it for the rest of my life.

Thanks in Advance.

You may not think its a Dental problem,
but none of you have mentioned seeing a Dentist.
Even if its not a dental problem they might have an idea what it could be.

You will probably get your answers at the oral surgeon...It sounds like salivary gland problems
