Jaw cysts and tumours can develop in the upper or lower jaw bone and can affect anyone from children to adults. Cysts and tumours can develop as a single lesion or as multiple lesions in the upper and lower jaws.
They usually go unnoticed when they are small but some might progress to significant swelling of the jaws which then prompt patients to seek consultation. Because of their generally slow growth, most cases are discovered through x-rays either during routine checks or during investigation of other problems in the jaws.
