Mass Found on Parotid Gland on MRI

I am a 25 year old woman with bad TMJ. I had a MRI of my TMJ on friday and saw the doctor monday. They told me I had to have surgery ( nothing new I had it before) but that I had a mass on the posterior part of my parotid gland. I work at the hospital and was able to see the scans. The radiology department wont read the scans because they said the quality is poor( which it really isnt) The mass is not palpable. They told me I had to have a biopsy of it but it has not been scheduled. I cant sleep because I have nothing but questions about what this could be. Can someone help me shed some light on it. I have some MRI images but for somereason some didnt get emailed.
