Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

This lumps are nothing more than a lymph nodes. This nodes get enlarged due to some infection in the surrounding areas including throat infection, salivary glands infection, teeth infection, ear infection.
You may have throat pain, fever, nausea with all mentioned issues.
Right side abdominal pain/discomfort can be caused by gallstones and you should have it checked.
I suggest you to consult laryngologist, have throat examination and an ultrasound of this swollen area.
You should also have abdominal ultrasound done to rule gallstones out.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards
