welcome to health care magic
Thanks for your query

You didn't mention in the query about your age and sex whether you are male or female..
The swelling under ear lobule might be a parotid gland swells either because of tumor or in taking of alcohol..or may be due to infection...
Go for FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology) of the swelling and consult surgeon for more suggestions and treatment.
Hope you understand my suggestion
Thank you
Have a speed recovery
Thank you
