Throat discomfort, trouble swallowing, hurts to touch jaw line, swollen. Any suggestions?

Two days ago I swallowed and it was followed by a weird sensation on the left side of my throat and a little trouble swallowing , Now I wake up this AM with discomfort on my left side jaw line in front of my ear, hurts to touch and feels a little swollen. My ear and teeth are fine no pain there.No congestion or cold either. Any suggestions on what this may be?
