Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
What you probably have is a blocked and infected salivary gland under the tongue. This is causing pain in the surrounding areas too. This will need to be drained. It can also be an infected cyst. Again this would need to be trained.
If it is found to be a swollen lymph node, then it could be due to poor oral hygiene, dental infection or TMJ.
It is difficult to give a confirmed diagnosis without examination. Do discuss this with your doctor, dentist and get an appointment with a Head and Neck doctor if need be. Take care!
