Alternate Names : Face Pain, Pain in the Facial Area

Facial Pain | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

Diagnosis begins with the history and physical exam. Further tests may be ordered. For instance, a blood test called an erythrocyte sedimentation rate is usually ordered if temporal arteritis is suspected. If a tumor of the saliva glands is suspected, a CT scan or MRI may be ordered to look at the gland.
