I have a swollen gum problem on top and bottom of one side. The first thought was its my wisdom tooth trying to come in however it looks like its folding in and making a hole. I am afraid it could be mouth cancer I had hogkins liphoma in the past and have been in remission for 6 years what do you think the pain is really bad I cant even open my mouth much and it hurts in the lower paRT OF MY FACE

  • You have not mentioned that where the pain is? if it is in the back and as you have mentioned that there is difficulty in opening the mouth ,it ooks like the wisdom tooth is coming out. You can visit the dentist and get the X-ray done. The dentist will come to know. some times the space is not sufficient for the wisdom tooth to come out . In such cases they have to be pulled out. if you want to know more about the wisdom tooth you can browse the following link....www.identalhub.com/dental-knowing-all-about-wisdom-teeth-719.aspx
