Huge swelling in Ramus

A case to discuss: A 16-year-old male who was referred oral surgeon for a left mandibular swelling. Panoramic radiograph reveals a very large and well-demarcated unilocular radiolucency associated with the crown of impacted tooth #17. This radiolucency extends posteriorly close to the coronoid process and anteriorly past tooth #18. Bony perforation is noted in the ramus area. The expansion was intra-oral, mild, and more buccal. This swelling was first noted by the general dentist, not the patient; extra-orally, the face looked symmetrical. This is not my case but can we please discuss this interesting case?
