Thanks for the query.

The left side of Neck at the area of the Adam's XXXXXXX is sub mandibular lymph-nodes and parotid gland a litter backward to it.

The lymph nodes enlargement is common which occurs mostly due to infections like throat infections, tonsils, adenoids and tuberculosis, sometimes the lymphadenopathy is idiopathic that is without any cause and sometimes it may be due to diseases like cancers but mostly its benign enlargement.

The description you have provided is most likely due to throat infection or allergies you have got. Visit to your doctor as you may require antibiotic cover, if the sizes progressively enlarges, then seek immediate medical assistance.

If you still have queries, feel free to ask.
