Have swollen round bits under jaw each side, dull pressure, pain, choking throat, smoker. Cancer?

I have these two swollen round bits under my jaw on each side, and I feel this dull pressure that is hard to describe. It feels like something is caught in my throat and at the same time it's just a little achy. I can talk fine and I have no issue swallowing. Im worried this might be due to my smoking? How can I tell if it's cancer?

Hi and welcome to HCM.
Only biopsy can show for sure what it is, but usually this is just a swollen lymoh node due to respiratory infection. But if there is redness around it or it is fixed to background or growing fast then you hsould visit specialist. If this is soft and movable then it can be lymph node or lipoma. To be sure you can do ultrasounds with needle biopsy and see exact casue. Wish you good health.
