Swollen gland in cheek in front of my left ear

i have a swollen gland in my cheek right in front of my left ear. it has gotten so swollen my jaw, cheek, and left ear are painful as well as a headache. this has been going on for months but only recently has gotten so bad to cause pain in surrounding areas. my left cheek is also tingly from my ear to my mouth. is there any thing i can do for this? my doc basically said there was nothing i can do but it really hurts now. i also have sarcoidosis and wonder if this just could be another symptom of that as those just seem to be multiplying

This sounds almost exactly what my eye doctor had and it ended up being an infection in his parotid gland and he ended up having surgery at UC Davis.  Have you seen an ENT doc?
