In brief: Swollen gland

You may have a swollen or infected major salivary gland.
The gland get infected, bacterial or viral, and become swollen, sore, and pussy. The glands can become blocked with stones or plugs. They will become swollen, especially after eating. These may get infected, too. Check with your dentist.
