See your doctor: Follow up with your doctor and have them check you out since it is getting worse. Also get plenty of rest.

Seek evaluation: Salivary glands and lymph glands have different (unrelated) functions. Any swelling, especially one that is golf ball sized, requires investigation. Please see your Physician for appropriate evaluation and treatment regimen.
