In brief: Salivary glands.
They are the some of your main salivary glands and are located under the jaw (submandibular).
They can often be felt on both sides of the upper neck. They make 80% of your nonstimulated saliva (not caused by eating). Othe main salivary glands are the sublingual glands (under the tongue) and the parotid glands in front of the ears and extending behind the jaw.
