this seems to be a homogenous opaque mass very close to your tmj. its well encapsulated causing mild pressure symptoms over surrounding structures. parotid tumour or fibroma need to be ruled out. a histopathologic biopsy of the lesion will confirm the diagnosis.
its a salivary gland tumour. its malignancy staging needs to be done by doing histopathological lesion biopsy.
