In brief: Salivary gland

For the parotid glands in each cheek, their ducts lead to the cheek side of the upper second molars, and sometimes these ducts can become blocked, causing in some cases an infection, but this is rare.
More often the blockage caused build up of fluid and swelling in one cheek with pain, often warm to the touch, and sometimes pinkish in color. If infected a fever may be present. See your dds soon!
