Rheumatologist 's  Response
Good evening sir. Well fron what you have described it looks like a parotid swelling on the left side along with lymph nodes. From what i suggest is you get am opinion from a rheumatologist. Since the history is acute it could be just an infection which will subside after antobiotics and wont be that mucj troublesome. But i had still wanna rule out any other possibility of enlarged glands abd lmypn node like sjogrens syndrome or tuberculosis.
