Mourning Dove has weird swelling or growth on left cheek (pictures)


The first picture is of his right cheek that is normal. The other side is the swollen side and the straight on photo you can see how it's swollen.

I just noticed this bump yesterday, not sure how long it's been like that. I was planning to release him in a couple weeks. He's been doing well but now I'm worried with this swollen face thing. Anyone know what it could be? I was thinking abscess and read they never go away on their own in birds.

Have you opened the beak and looked inside ?

Of course the first thought is canker as it is so common.
