In brief: Don't worry

It's not clear what is wrong with your parotid (salivary) glands, but cancer is very rare in this area and cancer usually doesn't occur on both glands at the same time.
So i'm not worried. Parotid glands can get enlarged for many non-cancer reasons. You can also develop stones in them. See a dentist or doctor if you have a lump in your mouth.
