In brief: Parotitis

You should get it checked out.
Sounds like you could have an infection of the salivary gland in your cheek, the parotid gland.

In brief: Referred ear pain

Sore throats can often radiate to the ears.
A check with the family doctor can usually diagnose or exclude strep throat and ear infections. For persistent symptoms consult an otolaryngologist for a thorough ear, nose and throat examination. Find an ENT doctor near you at www.Entnet.Org.
