    Get it checked ASAP by a doctor.  One of the rock/rap band The Beastie Boys died of cancer of the salivary gland several years ago at only 47 years of age.  Started out just like that with swelling and pain and a year later he was dead.

    No your primary or a urgent care or if you already have an ENT Doc are all appropriate. You don’t need an ED

    No.  That is not an EMERGENCY.  The ER is for EMERGENCIES.
