Brief Answer:
Submandibular swelling

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the information.
It is probably the submandibular gland swelling. You should get a fnac done from the swelling and an ultrasound submandibular area done for proper diagnosis.
Further treatment will depend on the test results.
Avoid any citrus foods.
Avoid touching the swelling frequently as it might cause infection.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Follow up with the reports.
Take care
Thanks and regards
