My husband has been complaining with left lower jaw pain. Especially when touched and or when he tucks his chin to his neck. He complains of it being in one certain area.
I am worried about him having TMJ or even worse lymph node cancer. He has been dipping snuff for ten years and has recently stopped, but I am afraid it's too late. What procedures should my husband follow?
You need a complete physical (regular physician), followed by an ENT specialist evaluation, and an evaluation by an oral surgeon. If no cancer is found, you need to find a TMJ specialist in your area. Let your physician handle the situation.
