In brief: ENT doctor can check

These symptoms suggest there is a blockage of the salivary duct that empties saliva from one of the saliva glands.
There could be a salivary "stone" or something else blocking the duct. The swelling is the buildup of saliva behind the blockage. A visit to the Ear Nose Throat doctor can help figure out and get rid of the problem.
