Lump in jawline, swollen glands, chest infection. Skin has reddened. Had suffered facial paralysis. Cancerous? Benign acoustic neuroma?
Thanks for posting your query.
A lump on the right side off your jawline which is immobile and changes in size during the day is likely to be a cystic swelling of the salivary gland.
It can also be a swollen lymph gland. In most of the cases such swellings are benign and are not worrisome.
But impacted sialoliths or infection of the glands needs to be ruled out. In case the cyst is large, resection might be needed.
You need to consult your dentist for a thorough evaluation and further treatment. Physical examination is imperative to know the nature of the lump. An MRI scan of the area will help in identifying the extent of spread of the lump.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Thanks for writing again.
Getting it examined from a dentist will be helpful. It seems to be a salivary gland swelling. You can get it examined from your primary physician who can refer you to an oral surgeon.
