What does a lump under the right ear indicate?

this symptom came on very very fast, immediate. Very hard, swollen, large lump about the size of an egg, left side of my neck, right under my ear. Extends from back of ear to cheek. I am 62 years old, female, and I do have autoimmune issues- currently on Humara. I do have sjorgrens issues at times. Could this be a symptom of that.
