Question hard knot on right side of jaw line

NEED HELP BAD!!! it all started about 4 months ago, i thought i had an abscess tooth and went to the ER with a broken moller and a bubble on my gum. they prescribed me antibiotics and sent me home... since then I have been back to ER 3 times! this last time the doctor wanted to take a CT SCAN, she said she was concerned with the location of this massive knot in my mouth located unusually lower down in and or on the gum where your cheek and gum meet. The results came back and she didn't say much other than it was a solid mass and I needed antibiotics of course. I was prescribed clindomyacin and sent home once again! I took all the medicine as prescribed and still the knot remained and got larger and the pain came and went with a vengeance. Over time on the outside of my jaw you could start to see a bump forming outward where the knot was growing to the point where it was pushing itself out through my skin. Today I felt something wet on my face and it was body fluid and blood tinged stuff oozing from the bump from the knot on the outside of my face.... I could really use some advice or ideas of what in the heck is going on!! Please help me!!
