I started to notice my cheeks got very puffy after a while so I stopped. The puffiness completely went away in my right cheek however in my left there is a small lump that can be moved around. Not to mention the overall Buccal Mucosa seems thicker. Another thing to add is that there seems to be subtle pulsing and the....
