Swelling in mastoid area and neck glands

I have a swelling in mastoid area that starts in the back behind the ear, and goes around to the front of the ear. The neck gland swells. Happens when I eat, about once a week. When I quit chewing ,the swelling goes down, leaving the area tender for a day.This isn t new and has been happening since 2004, but becoming more frequent.
