What is this? I had an abscess beforehand...does that mean the abscess didn't clear up? Someone please explain...thanks.

Hi,
It is possible that right after the endodontic treatment a swealing appears, but it hardly happens.

thank you for your response although the lump has been there for well over a month so I don't think that's it, unfortunately. I guess I could ask my dentist but I'm terrified of what she will say and she wasn't the one who did the root canal so she might not know as she only does crowns.

I don't think so, I would expect some kind of an answer. Give her a chance, she might surprise you ;)
