Understanding Jaw Cysts and Tumors
Jaw cysts and tumors are classified as abnormal growths that can originate from various tissues within the jawbone. These growths may be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous) and can develop for a variety of reasons, including infections, developmental abnormalities, trauma, genetic factors, and hormonal changes.
Diagnosis and Evaluation
Diagnosing jaw cysts and tumors typically involves a comprehensive evaluation process, which may include:
Physical examination: A thorough examination of your oral cavity, jaw, and surrounding structures to assess for signs of abnormal growths.
Imaging studies: X-rays, CT scans, or MRI scans to visualize the internal structures of the jawbone and identify the presence of cysts or tumors.
Biopsy: If a suspicious growth is identified, a biopsy may be performed to obtain a tissue sample for further analysis and diagnosis.
The treatment approach for jaw cysts and tumors depends on several factors, including the type, size, location, and aggressiveness of the growth. Treatment options may include:
Observation: Small, asymptomatic cysts may be monitored over time to assess for any changes or growth.
Surgical removal: Larger cysts or tumors, as well as those causing symptoms or affecting oral function, may require surgical excision.
Reconstruction: Following surgical removal, reconstruction of the jawbone may be necessary to restore oral function and aesthetics.
