Doctor

A:   Thanks for consulting us. First check the consistency of the cyst. If it is hard it could be related to teeth or bony structures. If it is related to dental, there will be associated caries or gingivitis. It could be dentegerous cyst. If the consistency is soft, possibility is Ranula or cyst of salivary gland ducts. Consult your Dentist and Surgeon for work up.
