Lymph nodes: When they a swollen, lymph nodes feel like small hard boiled eggs. They can roll around. The submandibular salivary gland covers most of the floor of the mouth. If there is a problem with it, the whole mass swells up.

See your Dentist: You need to see your dentist to determine if the swelling is lymph node or salivary, very different treatment depending on location.
