What on earth is this? All other glands are perfectly fine except under my left ear. My neck is swollen to the point you can see a difference between sides and it hurts!

I don't feel ill. Do I go to my GP.
I'm a bit worried.

It's just your immune system doing it's job. Not feeling ill is a good thing.

Just see how it goes and if it persists your body might need some help but right now I wouldn't worry.

Or if it happens after eating it's a blocked salivary gland which is great fun. I prod and poke mine when it happens to try get the crap out.
