Treatment options for jaw tumors and cysts vary, depending on the type of lesion you have, the lesion's stage of growth and symptoms. The treatment team considers and formulates treatment goals. Treatment of jaw tumors and cysts involves specialised surgical care. In some cases, treatment may be a combination of surgical and medical therapy.
Surgery is aimed at removal of jaw tumor or cyst, which may include extraction of nearby teeth, tissues and resection of either jaw, followed by reconstruction of the removed parts. A pathologist examines the removed tissue and reports a diagnosis during the procedure so that the surgeon can act on this information immediately.

Long follow-up exams after treatment can address any recurrence of jaw tumors and cysts early.
