Dental check

Next time this lump comes up take him to the vet and have his teeth checked. It could be a dental abscess as that would fit with the lump coming and going. It could be recessive gum disease causing infection or a damaged tooth. Either way have it checked. Hope this helps. :-)

Abscess???
by: Anonymous

Sounds a bit like a tooth root abcess. It may be due to recessive gum disease or a broken tooth. Take him/her to the vet next time it swells. Hope this helps. :-)
