Brief Answer:
Further details needed. Please upload an image

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone very carefully through your query. However, I would need certain other details:
* How long has the lump been there
* Can you please upload an image of the lump
* Is it tender

It could be an enlarged lymph node or could be enlargement of the parotid gland. I would be able to guide you further if you can upload the image.

I would wait for your response. Let me know if I could help further.

Regards
