Get checked: Your doctor needs to examine your jaw for a lymph node or something connected to your jaw bone. Best to get checked out by your doctor as soon as possible.

Disc: Seems like the cartilaginous disc in your Temporomandibular Joint may be displaced. Please call your dentist. The reason for the displacement has to be determined, and the disc needs to be recaptured.
