I am 39yrs and live in the Bahamas. I've been suffering from a cyst in my lower jaw for 14yrs.i have had 4 surgery on my jaw but still have the same problem.my jaw is swollen and very painful.I've lose all of my teeth on that side from previous surgery.I have no insurance and in desperate need of a surgeon
I would ask your doctor if this is a Desmoid Tumor...it sounds like more than just a cyst. Desmoids are extremely difficult to remove and almost always grow back. Do they have free health care clinics in the Bahamas? If so this would be your best bet in getting help. I wish you all the best, you've been through a lot.
