Somewhat difficult: to imagine what might be causing episodic swelling of the neck. Possibilities might include salivary gland swelling or angioedema. Lymph node swelling or enlargement wouldn't be expected to be transitory. Imaging, ultrasound, CT or MRI, should certainly help here and, especially since this has been going on over a year, you should see your doctor SOON for evaluation. Good wishes:)
