It'd be possible that a parathyroid gland be so enlarged to interfere with swallowing?

In brief: Rare

A parathyroid gland is the size of a grain of rice.
Quite small by all accounts. If it is enlarged, it would have to be "massive" to cause a problem. See a good head and neck surgeon with expertise in parathyroid gland surgery for their opinion.
