In brief: Sore throat

You may have any number of problems, including infected wisdom teeth, periodontal (gum and bone) disease, or other soft tissue infection(s).
Advanced tooth decay and abscess could cause pain and this much local soft tissue inflammation but the other conditions are equally important to identify and treat. See a dentist or oral surgeon immediately

In brief: Wisdom teeth?

Sounds like a wisdom tooth problem. If you havent had them removed get to a dentist to check them for you.
Could also be from a very advanced cavity resulting in a tooth abcess.

In brief: It's possible

But it could be caused by other things besides a cavity.
Gum disease, a necrotic tooth, viral infection. See a dentist to rule out tooth and gum related causes then see your doctor for follow up.
