Rapidly growing painful swelling

A 55-year-old female complaints of a rapidly growing painful expansion on the left side of her mandible for 20 days. The patient reported traumatic luxation of her lower left central and lateral incisors due to a fall and their subsequent extractions by a general dentist. The extraction site had not healed properly and had been expanding. The lesion had been interfering with her eating. Intraoral examination revealed a diffuse swelling in her left anterior mandible measuring  cm and extending from the right central incisor to the left canine. The overlying mucosa was erythematous, ulcerated, and necrotic. The lesion was soft to firm in consistency on palpation. What is the most probable diagnosis? and treatment?

Odontogeniic myxoma Advise OPG Biopsy
Iopa adv. Irt 33 + Biopsy P.d Traumatic fibroma (necrotic/infected) Positive History of pyrexia would be suggestive for Infection.
Looks like peripheral ossifying fibroma... Go for iopa as well as occlusal Radiograph to see the bone expansion. And yes biopsy is mandatory in such cases. Treatment can be done by Lasers or electrocautery.
Get a radiograph done both opg and iopa will be good...its biopsy is also needed...it could be a traumatic fibroma . Excicional biopsy post radiography get a cbc done too...any history of hypertension?
