Swollen gland near ear on face where jaw hinges?

To anyone who has advice:

I have a swollen sore spot on my cheek near my ear, where my jaw hinges. It hurts, and when I open my mouth it bulges out. Does anyone know what the hell is going on....

Sounds like your parotid gland. It is this large salivary gland that starts just in front of the ear. I don't know much about problems with the gland, but that might help you search the internet for possibilities. Good luck.
