My brother-in-law just had some x-rays at the dentist (just routine 6 month exam) and they called him back in after reviewing them and said that they wanted to do a panoramic view of them. They did those and after reviewing them, they want to send him to a dental/surgeon specialist. They found "something" in the left side of his jaw/neck. They said it looked like a "bone-like" structure. He hasn't been having pain. He is 31 years old. Has smoked off and on. Could you give me the possibilities of what this could be?
