Get an exam: Sublingual gland or submandibular gland? I would recommend an exam by an ENT before telling you this is nothing. Something that has been there for years and nonchanged is likely nothing to be concerned about, but i would feel better having seen it first. The submandibular glands should feel about the same size and consistency on both sides. It is not normal to be able to see a sublingual gland.

Swollen shoulers: Did you overuse them? Are both shoulders swollen or just one? Try ice, rest, see what happens. If better, just watch. If worse or other symptoms, see doc.
