Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Read and understood your problems related to the lump in the throat which is not allowing to swallow. and also have a lump in the mandibular region.

The commonest cause can be a peritonsilar abscess causing the lump and inability to swallow.
The pain in the ear looks to be a referred pain.

I would advise you to go to the hospital and get admitted as inability to swallow will make you dehydrated and you also have to take antibiotics by intravenous route.
You will also need intravenous fluids.
